PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Literacy Night or Parent Night - Make and Take freebie: Cootie Catchers for Comprehension Freebie! (Fuzzy on how to fold them? No worries. Click here for a quick video refresher on folding a Cootie Catcher: http://bit.ly/FoldCootieCatcher This video link is also included in this file.)
Do you have Literacy Night at your school? I love to invite families to a fun make-and-take session for Literacy Night. I've helped organize, prepare, and lead Literacy Nights many times over the course of my teaching career, and I plan to continue this tradition for years to come.
This product is a fun activity from my fun and engaging product that really impresses parents and administrators - Literacy Night for Grades 3-5! This is a complete activity from the full product, with teacher instructions, parent instructions, and 2 Cootie Catchers (1 Fiction, 1 Nonfiction).

This free selection is not editable, but the full "Literacy Night Make and Take for Parent Involvement Grades 3-5" is editable.

Description for Literacy Night Make and Take for Parent Involvement Grades 3-5: Now Editable! Involve parents as you head Back to School! Parents want to help their child, and a Make-and-Take night gives them an immediate tool they can use at home to support essential literacy skills. The process of making these activities keeps both students and parents positively engaged while having fun with activities to practice reading comprehension, decoding, fluency, and vocabulary. Parents and students love to attend “Make and Take” Literacy night!
In this packet, I walk you through the planning of a Literacy Night at your school, whether you are inviting just your class, or several grade levels. I’ve even included a “blurb” about the event to use in your newsletter, class website, etc. It can be difficult to plan what materials are needed, so I’ve included a list for each station.
I’ve included oodles of printables at the end of this book to use for reminders, documentation, and even a reward for students who attend. A Literacy Night can be a great opportunity for community collaboration, too! Remember to take tons of pictures/video for your professional portfolio.
I’ve been organizing Literacy Night at my schools for many years, so I created my own activities to share with teachers in third, fourth, and fifth grade to keep the connection between home and school strong throughout the upper elementary years. I hope this benefits your students as much as it has benefited mine over the years! If you share photos from your event on social media, please tag @hellomrssykes (Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook) so I can cheer you on!

For a look at how I run this parent involvement program, here's a blog post I wrote about Literacy Night on my blog, Hello Mrs Sykes. The only prep work is making copies and cutting apart the Cootie Catchers and the bookmarks, to make them easier to fold.
