Stonewall Flanders hosts fun-filled Literacy Night

2018 Stonewall Flanders Literacy Night

The Literacy Night at Stonewall Flanders Elementary School was a big success on Sept. 18.

Parents, grandparents and siblings joined the elementary students for an evening filled with games and activities designed to help children become the best readers they can be.

Beginning at 6 p.m., families entered the school’s cafeteria and participated in a variety of Mad Minute-themed stations – each one with a different reading activity designed to promote literacy at home.

Literacy stations included sight words, beginning sounds, grammar, writing a story and Mad Libs.

Stonewall Flanders Elementary Instructional Reading Coach Marivel Garcia organized the event with the help of teachers in every grade level, Pre-K through fifth.

“We wanted to find things that were going to go across all academics and turn it into a one minute game to just have fun with literacy,” Garcia said.

As students and their families rotated through the stations, they chose different prizes including a no homework pass or free lunch with the principal.

A representative from the San Antonio Public Library was also in attendance to tell families about the perks of the library as well as give information on signing up for a library card.

At the end of the night, the students were able to enjoy delicious sweet treats and received a free book!

Garcia said that she was pleased with the outcome of the evening and looks forward to hosting this event again next year.

“Our overall goal is for the children to be happy and excited about literacy and not see it as something that is only for homework or only for during the school day, but also something you can enjoy with your family,” Garcia concluded.

Way to go, Stonewall Flanders!
