New Garden Elementary School students in grades first through fifth took part in the school’s Family Literacy Night, hosted by Title I. During the evening, students and their parents engaged in several comprehension and decoding activities. Teachers modeled the activities and shared strategies with parents with the goal of increasing reading at home. Teachers, students, and parents took this opportunity to talk about reading, practice important reading skills, and build a joy for life-long literacy. Toward the end of the night, students were able to take their activities home and pick out a “just right book” with their parent(s).
Family Literacy Night is an important night to our students and their families. At New Garden Elementary School we strive to meet the needs of all of our students and provide the best learning opportunities that we can. A special thanks to all the teachers, families, interpreters, and our Kennett High School volunteers for helping make this night a success for everyone!
