Students and families celebrate reading at Family Literacy Night

Bullard Early Childhood and Bullard Primary School recently hosted its first Family Literacy Night. 

“Our first combined BEC/BPS Family Literacy Night was a terrific success,” event coordinator Cheryl Langston said. “We had 185 participants who watched live demonstrations of a picture walk and story comprehension questions that will help their children become stronger readers.” 

Picture walks help students to make connections and better understand the sequence of events they will read about. Picture walks also help them see if their story predictions were correct or if the story took a surprising turn. Asking questions throughout the story helps students comprehend and allows for deeper engagement with the story while learning new vocabulary and skills.  

Students and their families finished the evening by choosing a new book, receiving a double-sided bookmark with examples of each strategy, and enjoying refreshments.
