Planning an event to celebrate Family Literacy is a lot of work but, most schools or community programs already have events in place such as Open House, Back to School Night, or a Science Fair. Adding literacy to these events can be a successfully tool in improving student interest in reading and parent involvement. A family literacy event should incorporate meaningful activities for parents and children both.
Over the past several years, there have been some very inventive events across Idaho implemented through the Idaho Reads! VISTA program.
