Literacy Night Buzz

I'm currently sitting in my computer lab at school. It is literacy night and the lab is open but I am happy to report the lab is dead. Now, don't get me wrong, I love technology, but it makes me happy to see kids more interested in the author, the book swaps and fun family activities. I've seen a few students here and there but it has mostly been quiet aside from the buzz in the hallway as families cycle through the book fair and giveaway tables. I love working in this community. It is always amazing to me how many families, even the ones you wouldn't expect, show up to these events.
As I sit here, all I hear is happiness. The occasional people running into each other and laughing hysterically. The more frequent, kids excited squeaking voices yelling to their moms to " COME ON!" I hear dads chuckling as they are dragged from room to room.
So when I go to school tomorrow and hear, "I didn't see you last night!" I will have a quick, "well I heard you," as my comeback.


  1. It so nice you notice the parent participation -- it is so hard as working parents to balance it all and it is nice when the effort is recognized. Sounds like a great event!

  2. Betsy, what you describe is music to my ears-Children and parents chuckling, talking, and cycling through the book fair. How wonderful that you captured that for us.

  3. Sounds like a great night! I would love to know more about what your school does!

  4. Felt like I could hear them too from your description!


Thanks for the comment love!
