Family Literacy Night at Roxhill Elementary: It’s not just about what you read, it’s about how you read

Family Literacy Night tonight at Roxhill Elementary, and it was about more than books – it was also about reading, and how to make it more fun and inviting. What you see above are examples of what you can use to make a comfy place to read to and with children – blankets, stuffed animals, etc., made available tonight to Roxhill scholars and their families.

Among the families at the school tonight – dad Adolfo, mom Regna, third-grader José and kindergartener Francisco with, at right, Roxhill fifth-grade teacher Christopher Robert. The night’s lineup for all included a pizza dinner and a literacy skit, with visits to “literacy stations” inbetween. At one of them, families were presented with the books that, as Robert explained, are part of the Seattle Public Library collaboration with Roxhill and Sanislo. Roxhill is between librarians, so two teachers presented the books along with Nathalie Wargo, children’s librarian from High Point Branch Library.
