parent engagement tip

Hey all y'all! It's the BigTime Blogging Challenge. I'm writing every day in July to celebrate my blog's three year anniversary! Join me - write your post, link it up with mine, leave some love for blogging friends in the form of comments!

There are so many fun things you can do with parent engagement - Just wanted to share something we planned to help enhance summer reading!

Of course all teachers want their students reading over the summer. This year, we are leveraging the power of social media to have our parents *show us their kiddos reading.

We created a facebook group and began to invite parents. Before the end of the school year, our teachers - mostly Mr. Puhr - would take the kids to the park or outside to read, snap some pics of them, and then post them on the page. This was just a little model for what we were hoping for, and it's been working fabulously! Check out a few of the posts we've had:

As an added incentive, we were approved for $100 to use for gift cards, so each Friday, we randomly choose a winner of everyone who had posted the week before, and then mail that person a $10 Target gift card.

We also sent home a bingo sheet, with lots of different ideas for reading - under the table, with some ice cream, with a friend or relative, etc. The posts have been super cute, but best thing is our students are reading like crazy this summer!
