Lit night

Clip to ScrapBook #4

Our school has done a lit night for the past 3 years. K - 2 teachers plan and implement the entire thing. We start with a theme at the beginning of the year. All of us incorporate this theme in our Back to School bulletin boards. We come up with a variety of activities and the kids with at least one parent move from activity to activity. It's set up in a station format so the whole evening lasts about and hour. We begin by reading a story to the whole group to kick it off. Each child is given a name tag that puts them in a group. (a different name tag for each moving group)
We always have a book making area, this year another was to make a pointer to take home. They make some type of snack, we have a talented K teacher who gathers and writes songs and they each get a song book, then we try to think of at least one more activity. Each area focuses on the theme even the snack. It's lots of fun for all of us.
