Plainfield parents experienced a special night of games, food, crafts and fun with their kindergartners, as they focused on the joy of literacy and learning as a family.

During Family Literacy Night, students and families learned how to sequence events, match sentences to pictures, categorize by matching vocabulary words to a topic, made picture dictionaries and word association books.

The benefits for parents and students ranged from students exhibiting an increasing excitement for literacy learning and witnessing their families' support for their learning and school environment. Families experienced the fun of learning alongside their child; developed greater awareness of ways to assist their child in acquiring and strengthening literacy skills; and gained insight into the kindergarten level literacy program.

Erica Siguenza (kindergarten teacher), Jaclyn Fuentes (bilingual teacher), Karen Higginson (instructional resource support), Mimi Solt (reading resource teacher) and Kati McGowan (teacher assistant) coordinated the Family Literacy Night.
