Reading "Storytime" Night

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 experience a read-aloud from a special guest author and explore tips and strategies for how to effectively read aloud.

 

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  

  • Practice and Play

Guess Who's Coming to Sunday Dinner! S.T.E.A.M. Night

  Strike Up the Brain It's Game Night!

Who knew board games could be educational growing up!   All of that light-hearted play actually led to some serious child development benefits of encouraging learning as well as to enhance critical thinking, motivation and interpersonal interactions all while learning.  Although your children may find it hard to believe, there was a time long ago when families used to gather around the table, look one another right in the eye, and play real-life, interactive games together, well into the night like Sorry, Trivia Pursuit, Checkers, Uno, Scrabble, Monopoly or Chutes and Ladders...So we think it’s high time to bring family game night out of the past and into your immediate future!  During this session, your inner child will re-discover the Power of Play!

Learning Objectives:  

 

  • Understanding the link between board game activities and student learning

  • Identify strategies families can easily implement at home via games

  • Organize  “The Family Game “Night
