We have a family literacy night each year. Teachers sign up to read a book or a portion of a book if it is a chapter book. We then plan a short activity to go along with the book.

The night starts in the gymnasium, we have the students sign in, get their name tags and they can bring books for the book swap. We count their books and give them a ticket to pick up the same number of books at the end of the night. We also tell them what group they are in.

Then, there is a brief presentation by a guest author. After the author, the students go to their breakout sessions with the teachers. That lasts for about 25 minutes and then they go back to the gym for the book swap and the PTA usually has snacks and refreshments in the cafeteria for them. It is a great night.

Good luck!
