    Family Literacy Night

    We have Family Literacy night at my school. The PTO buys through Scholastic the 100 books for $100. Then we play sight word BINGO and the winner of each round gets to pick a book to take home as their prize.

    Each class chooses their favorite read aloud short story. The children with simple costumes act out the story while it is being read by the teacher or a student. My class did SWIMMY by Leo Lionne the black fish wore black t-shirts and Swimmy wore red.
    Also did Caps For Sale one year and the kids had a great time being the Monkeys!

    We do a Book Walk exactly like a Cake Walk except words on the floor not numbers and the prizes are books. (Also from the box of Scolastic 100)

    Computer Lab is set up with all reading/language art software that night.

    One area is like Wheel of Fortune where there are word puzzles to figure out families compete to complete the phrases first.

    This is a few, after the story plays the rest of the activities are done "carnival" style so the families just float from activity to activity the rest of the evening. It's fun hope you enjoy yours!
