PLYMOUTH — Fairview Elementary School in Plymouth recently held a family reading night with games, activities and a book swap.
“The main objective of the family reading night was to illustrate to students and parents the importance of reading,” said Melissa Costello, Fairview library media specialist.
About 200 parents and students attended the free event, held Janurary 24 at the school. Families could play a number of reading games, including sight word “island hopping” and board games featuring punctuation, synonyms and antonyms and rhymes.
Students could design a bookmark to take home, and participate in a book swap. District reading specialists offered ways for parents to support their children’s reading efforts.
Reading Night was presented by the Fairview PTO and Fairview staff.
