In addition to sitting in on parent report card conferences for our at risk and new students, I have been quick-writing a family literacy grant proposal. Now that my back door is repaired and I have my school laptop. Being robbed took a chunk out of my week’s energy and attention yesterday.
So, my late night mind is awash with our thematic ideas: Reading & Writing Roundups on Saturdays, Writing Rodeos nights, parent groups trained to push into classrooms in OK Corral events. Breakfasts for parent Chuck Wagon Chats. Field trip Library Hoedowns. We’ll get cheap bandanas and hats and have fun with the western, country theme. We have a core team of teachers, a vision and now going after the funding.
I will be back to reading and writing more blogs after this deadline tomorrow.
🙂 Literacy to all.
