We are planning a "Reading Round-Up" night. We plan on having a chili supper with mock smores, free Build a Book to all students, a book reading by a local reader and also be promoting our Schoolastic Book Fair. We are planning this event in February during our book fair week. We hope to have a fun, successful family event!

We are tying our Family Reading Night into our Scholastic Book Fair too. We sponsor the book fair all week during school hours but will bring the carts to the gym the night of the fair. Many parents who work do not get the opportunity to shop the book fair; now they can! Our's is a simple theme of sharing stories, like you would around a camp fire. Families can bring blankets to sit on. We live in Charleston, SC so we are having a dynamic Gullah (native African Americans who live in the lowcountry) storyteller come to open the event. A mock fire is being built in the middle of the gym floor (logs, tissue paper and flashlights). We are offering simple snacks of s'mores snack mix which we are making ourselves and bagging (chocolate chips, mini marshmallows, and goldfish grahams) with bottled water for free. After the story telling, kids can make bookmarks or sit in the reading corner where MS students will partner up with the elementary ones and read to them or families can enjoy a book together. Then everyone can depart home ready for bedtime!

Our reading night theme was It's a bird, it's a plane, it's a Book. Book stations centered around heroes.
