    Family Literacy
    By MJH

    Clip to ScrapBook
    Our school uses the program Partners In Print. The program calls for parents and kids to attend each of the four meetings. The committee decides what lessons to use and the teachers scheduled that night have to conduct the mini-workshops. The lessons are on how to set up a homework space at home, How to read to young children, how to engage young children in reading (asking question, describing pictures, prediciting). The mini-workshops last about 20 - 30 mins. We conduct three different workshops each night and have a rotating schedule. The program is for K-2.

    We also include some of our own Family Literacy activities at other times. Next month we are hosting a Pajama Party. Kids and teachers will come to school that night wearing their pajamas and stories will be read to them. We enourage parents to participate in the book clubs. Most of the time Scholastics have good books for .50 to $1.00, most parents are willing to participate because the prices are very reasonable.

    Hope this is of some help.
