Engage Our Families in Reading!

Help me give my students Family Engagement Reading Packs to check out and engage with their parents at home!

My Students

I am blessed to teach third grade at a wonderful Title I school in northeast North Carolina. Our students are loving, hard working, easily motivated, and care about each other and their success! They thrive on competitions and reaching goals set for them throughout the school year.

Our students get excited, work harder and stay more engaged when they are given options and choices which makes them feel valued and that their interests matter!

We are a diverse school consisting of students and families from various backgrounds and cultures as well as Coast Guard families. They are each unique and have a special way of winning our hearts with their kindness and thoughtfulness. The students and staff at our elementary school have truly become a family to one another!

My Project

We have been working hard at our elementary school to help students develop a love for reading! These family engagement reading packs will be a great addition to our check out materials that parents can take home to engage with their students to help them practice reading comprehension, fluency and vocabulary in a fun and exciting manner.

Tell me and I forget, teach me and I remember, Involve me and I learn, is a powerful quote by Benjamin Franklin.

Our goal is to teach students to fall in love with "learning to read" at an early age so when they get into the upper grades they will be successful in "reading to learn" about all types of things from fairy tales and fables, to our community, state, world, and those who have impacted their history. We believe that providing parents with engaging tools and resources such as these 10 sets of reading packs for grades K-2, it will help us to ensure their students' needs are being met inside and outside of the school building at their individual level. Although the resources are labeled K-2, we plan to use these with students at any grade level that has a need to practice and/or master the skills included in these engagement packs.

Thank you for considering our project to provide more reading family engagement materials to our families and students and know it will make a difference in their reading success!
