Family Reading Night

My book making table at my school's Family Reading Night was a hit! As you can probably tell, we had a tropical luau theme to the evening. I was amazed at how many students were so excited to make a book about whatever they wanted. Several of the kids wrote about their parents.  I could tell the adults were quite touched when they read their child's book. Almost every student took extra blank books home to write even more. I think this counts as a writing celebration. Thanks for all of your great ideas! I'm already thinking about next year.

Kids and parents writing books! You can't see it but
there is an author board at the end of the table. After
the writers finished their books, they signed the board.
Ahhh, nothing like a good beach read.
These friends know how to relax at the beach. By the end
of the night, I was ready to take a nap too. :)

  3. Diana,
    Did you pre-make books for the kids to write in or did the kids do that part too? Looks like everyone was having a great time!

  5. Awesome! I love the beach reading! I think I just might do that in my classroom this spring! I have a coconut tree so it would be a perfect place to add "sand and water" for reading time! Thanks for the idea and great pictures!
