Parents and Reading

Found in: reading; parent involvement

We implemented a 'Muffins for Mom and Donuts for Dad' program. Once a month, about 45 minutes before school starts for children, we open up a couple of Title 1 rooms for children and their parents and/or adult friends to come and read together. We put out a variety of books to choose, from very low-level patterned books to regular library books for kindergarten through fifth grade. We provide muffins, donuts, juice and coffee. We presented this idea to a business and they liked it so much that they are funding the refreshments. We had one RSVP for the first session but filled up two rooms for an hour. The response from children and parents has been excellent. 70% of our students are on free/reduced lunches at our school. It is really making a positive difference at our school.
