    how timely! i was just looking over this morning's family reading night committee meeting agenda!

    we are having a family reading night with the theme Love-a-Book the day before val day. we are doing the following:

    we had funds to buy a book for every student in the school (about 400) (we did buy a lot of books during our school's scholastic book fair, so saved like 25%.) so every student who comes will get a book.

    we'll have teachers giving talks for parents of primary and intermediate students--how to read with your child, improve your child's reading...

    a room with spansih/english books and someone reading books in spanish. (we recently acquired an ELL program mainly comprised of spanish speakers.)

    a room with fractured fairy tales and papers with fairy tales started so kids can finish writing them. (this incorporates our writing goal with reading.)

    rooms with students reading their published writing.

    all classrooms will have class and individually-made books on display

    cookies and milk in the gym, along with applications for 2 local public libraries

    some adults reading books aloud

    station where kids can make their own bookmarks--leave them, and we'll laminate them and get them to the kids the following week.

    we'll also have pamphlets on our state's "dinner and a book" and other reading ideas available.

    i think that's everything--hope it helps! email me if you have any questions.
