    Have you considered using activities with the newspaper? For our math night one year, our local paper sent a rep from NIE, Newspapers in Education. There are things you can do for math and literature nights. it can cover addition, subtraction, statistics, etc. so there is a wide age range. We also had each class post a graph that the families had to fill out with post-it notes. Something simple like favorite kind of movie, or candy bar, or number of people in your household. Then each class had an estimation jar of some kind and we used these as door prizes for those who came closest. The library even had a guess the amount of books contest. you could also have stations to measure and weigh things. We like to combine books with everything, so using the M&M's counting book or Hershey book is great. Also the tangram book...Grandfather Tang? Hope this helped. Michelle
