    Don’t let the title fool you! I thought it would be yet another brief blurb describing just the theme. But, it truly includes useful information. Providing a sample agenda (and one that’s detailed) and a supply list means a better process to planning.

    Hearing from an actual educator makes family reading night ideas jump off of the page. I can see how the activities described can truly help build a successful family reading night and contribute to parental involvement. The best part, for me, was getting to see clips of the actual activities. Getting to see how much the students (and their families) enjoyed the event is awesomely inspirational!

    I love the teacher’s perspective including in this video. What struck me was the way the story fuses the need for a reading night (e.g., increasing parental participation, helping students to read) with the actual event itself.

    Even though I’m a fan of lists (especially when it comes to activity ideas), this tip sheet adds in other factors that every teacher needs to consider when planning a family reading night. The inclusion of sample objectives and ways to increase parent participation provide suggestions that round out the prep process. I can see how this would easily streamline the planning necessary for such a school-wide event.
