Thursday night, our grade level is hosting an "I'm Making a Difference in My Child's Life Night". Catchy title, huh? Each teacher (7 total) is hosting a 10 minute, quick tip session that will really help our parents when working with their child at home. We are covering: sight words, reading to and with your child, websites, building sentences, comprehension strategies, writing and sounding out and writing difficult words. Oh, and my topic is why it's important to read 20 minutes every night. I made a (if I do say so myself) cute PowerPoint that I hope will grab the parents' attention.
So, in order to get parents in we are offering:
translators for each class
free babysitting (each teacher pitched in $5 to pay for the sitters)
Do you have something that is a sure-fire get those parents in the door tip or trick to share?
I'd LOVE to hear it!
Do you think it will work?
I hope so. It's really been minimal planning, but we hope to get a lot of bang for our buck!
We even created a paper for parents to use that had a quick highlight of what we talked about along with a place for taking notes.
So on that note, who is up for a giveaway?
Here's the deal...we have approximately 130 first graders.
How many of their parents you think will show up?
The person who guesses the closest will win 2 items of their choosing from my TPT store!
