Power-Up!
Ignite the Power of Family Engagement

Research consistently shows the positive impact on learning and development when families are “plugged-in” as learning partners. A strong relationship between the parent and school benefits everyone - students, families, teachers, and leaders. During this POWERFul session, we will explore having a partnership mindset, exercising your partnership power at home and school, and powering up your potential as a supporter, monitor, advocate, and learning navigator.

 

Learning Objectives:

  • Explore strategies for engaging as a partner at home and school

  • Identify the various roles of families and caregivers in supporting their child’s learning

What do these activities have in common:  Sorting the laundry, organizing the kitchen cabinets, walking the dog, and sending a thank you note to Grandma? If you are an 8-year-old child, you might say, “My chores”.  And, while that is correct, these everyday activities are also wonderful opportunities to support learning at home. That is what I call a Win-Win!  Join us for this highly interactive session to learn easy ways to turn everyday activities into learning opportunities. During three rotations, participants will engage with other adults to solve, play, create and explore.

 

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify everyday learning opportunities that support learning and development

  • Practice turning everyday opportunities into learning activities

  • Build social capital

Turning Everyday Activities Into Learning Opportunities

Partnering with Families to Implement Literacy Activities at Home

Research consistently shows that what families do to support learning at home is a strong predictor of literacy success and overall academic achievement. And, here’s more good news - reading aloud is one of the most powerful ways that families can support their child’s learning. During this session we will discuss the importance of reading aloud and explore tips and strategies for strengthening families’ role as a reading partners. 

 

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the link between parent-school partnerships and student learning

  • Identify read aloud strategies families can easily implement

 

  • Explore everyday learning opportunities for supporting children’s literacy          

We all develop in part from the books and texts in our lives – from an early age through adulthood. Understanding your literacy journey assists you in reflecting on your own story and provides an opportunity to connect with your child on the books they are reading and written text they encounter daily. During this session, participants will understand their literacy story, create their literacy roadmap, and learn ways to connect with their children around their literacy identity.

 

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand your literacy journey story

  • Mapping your "family" literacy story

  • Share your literacy story with your child

Understanding Your Literacy Road Map

Get Your Confidence On!

Let’s be honest, it isn’t an easy time to be a kid or an adult these days.  Wouldn’t it be nice if we could pick up a bottle of “confidence” at Target? However, over time, all of the replenishing ---just like those regular runs to Starbucks for a daily boost --- would certainly add up. Thank goodness, boosting children’s "Super Power" of confidence and self-esteem is free.  Moreover, the best part – confident adults produce confident children. During this session, we will explore the core beliefs of confident families, how to model confidence in yourself, and tips and strategies for supporting children in feeling capable and confident.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the link between parent-child confidence

  • Identify strategies families can easily implement

  • Explore everyday learning opportunities to model for boosting children’s "Super Power"         

Have you ever felt like you were speaking a foreign language when talking with your children?  If you’ve experienced blank stares, one-word answers, or disengagement, this session is for you! Join us during this session to learn “kid lingo,” how to engage in conversation, what not to say, and how to listen attentively.

 

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the link between parent-child partnerships and conversational engagement

  • Identify conversational strategies families can easily implement

  • Explore everyday learning opportunities for supporting listening and speaking with your child
