Take Home Literature Packs
Take home literature packs are a great idea for students and families in the younger grades. These packs are full of activities for children and parents to do at home together! Completing these activities will allow children to learn and practice their literacy skills at home while getting the chance to spend more quality time with parents and siblings. These packs can be about anything from poetry to bed time to the rain. Each one that the teacher sends home with the student will focus on one topic and provide a booklist of books that associate with the given topic. Families are able to read these books together, either alone or aloud to one another and use them to discuss the topic afterwards. These packs are useful for all ages of children because the topics associate with things that they may be interested in. For teachers, they are an easy and non expensive way to get families more involved in the classroom!
