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. The editable PowerPoint includes editable versions of planning sheets and invitations so you can customize this to meet the needs of your school community.

Each of the 4 Make and Take activities in the PDF file include a teacher instruction page, a parent friendly instruction page, and the engaging printables you will need for each activity. Additionally, the editable PowerPoint includes 2 editable pages per activity. Please note: the text is editable, but the graphics are not. This allows me to respect the copyrights of the clipart artists included in this set.

Due to popular request, I’ve included 40+ printables at the end of the PDF file to use for reminders, documentation, and even a reward for students who attend. The PowerPoint includes these printables, so you can edit the text to reflect the particulars for your school. 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! The ZIP file you will receive includes 2 files, a 74 page .pdf file, and a 30 page .ppt file that allows you to customize the text. Read on to see exactly what is included!

Download the preview for a free Comprehension Cootie Catcher activity, complete with teacher instructions, parent instructions, and 2 Cootie Catchers (1 Fiction, 1 Nonfiction). For an even closer look, 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.

This product is a single-school grade-level license for you to use with your colleagues in promoting family literacy fun! For additional schools/grade levels, please purchase multiple licenses.
