While Merry Mermaid and Super Scraptastic Scrap Eater were at Quilt Market in Minneapolis with Riley Blake, I was preoccupied with another activity close to my heart. :)
This was the first year that I volunteered to co-chair something at my son's school, their Annual Family Literacy Night. Two other moms and I had been planning it since the first of the year, and it finally happened! It was so much fun!!
- To determine how many prison beds will be needed in future years, some states actually base part of their projection on how well current elementary students are performing on reading tests.
I had to pin your literacy night! Im an elementary librarian and you had such good ideas!! Im doing Give 5 Read 5 right now. Students who read 5 books near their reading level will maintain over the summer. So we trade out. I have t read a loud a math end of grade test tomorrow so I will willingly take 2nd graders on a field trip! I miss teaching that grade!
Your literacy night looks wonderful! Thank you for doing it. I know as an adult I have been amazed over and over again how many people will use (or make) spare time and personal resources to help kids. It is humbling and uplifting to know so many people care.
The reading night looks like it was great! I used to read to the 2nd graders, when my boys were younger. I loved it as much as the kids did, getting to teach them the wonders that are in books. The librarian loved it too, since she would have a 'run' on the books that I had read to the class (all my books, but, most of them were in the library, too).
I volunteered in my oldest daughters library for 5 years - it is all that librarian's fault that I ended up getting 2 degrees in education! Loved working in the library introducing kids to books. Your book fair would have been a blast! Anything that helps to get kids reading is A+ in my book :)
