Grandparent's Literacy Night

Every year our school has a Grandparent's Breakfast. It is organized chaos. Every. Single. Year. We have tried different things each year. Grandparents don't pay, Grandparent's pay, every staff hand on deck, different grade levels coming at different times, on and on. But every year it is chaos.

This year our school is displaced. Our K-1 is in an old school that closed a few years ago. Our 2-3 is at a church about 10 blocks away, and our 4-5 is at another church about a mile away. This displacement had us thinking how would we do Grandparent's Breakfast? Everyone starts their day at the K-1 building then load transfer buses and go to their locations for the day. How were we going to house an extra 200 kids in this building for breakfast? So I suggested we do a Grandparent's Literacy Night. We had different stations for the Grandparent's to do with their Grandkids. Here are the stations we had for Grandparent's Literacy Night:

This idea came from a friend of mine. Grandparents and grandkids fill this out together. Grandparents answer the questions for when they were in elementary school. Then the kids answer the questions for themselves. My mother-in-law loved doing this with her granddaughter! Here are their answers:


At this station grandparents and grandkids see who can make the most words using the word grandparents. I printed and laminated the letters for them to use. 




I thought of this as a quick easy thing for kids to make. This ended up being everyones favorite station! I have to admit...I think I colored about 5 myself. As we were setting up, several teachers also made some bookmarks. 

I had a teacher at this station laminating the bookmarks for the kids as they finished them.

We always happen to have Grandparents Breakfast during Book Fair week. I know...great idea on our part. Grandparents can't say no...especially when its books!!





We also served cookies and punch along with our event. A wonderful time was had by all. Several Grandparents commented that they like this better than the breakfast because they got to spend more time with their grandkids. One even said their was much less waiting! All around we think it was a great night. Here is a link to all of these things for FREE!!!! Grandparents Literacy Night Freebie
