    K-2 literacy night

    This year we had a very successful literacy night at our school and it was really simple. We had a meeting in the auditorium of all the parents while the teacher did an interactive read aloud to the children. The parents then went to their classrooms. The teachers explained using mentor text in their reading and writing workshops. The teachers then read a mentor text which explicitly showed the font strategies that we want the children to pattern in their writing...such as speech bubbles, thought bubbles, text wrapping, bold print, sound words...etc......teachers pointed out these techniques during their reading. Various books that highlight the strategies you want to show were placed on the tables. The parent and child went on a scavenger hunt to find the various techniques. We had a little tea afterward in each classroom. I teach K and I thought it went so well in my room and there was not a lot of preparation for it.
