More than 100 students and their families gathered together on the evening of Oct. 4 to celebrate their love of literacy. Susan E. Wiley Elementary School held its first Family Literacy Night of the school year for students in kindergarten through second grade.

The theme was “Read with Me,” and students and their families joined teachers in their classrooms to learn reading strategies parents can use at home. Students and their families read together using “We Both Read” books where each book is specially formatted for a parent and student to take turns reading aloud alternate pages. The parent pages feature higher-level text, while the student pages feature text that matches the student’s reading level.

Susan E. Wiley will hold its next Family Literacy Night for grades 3-5 on Nov. 1.
