Published 9:15 am Saturday, March 10, 2012


Children and adults had the change to make a game, read a new book and learn about fluency, among other activities during the family night.

On March 1 Hawthorne Elementary School’s kindergarten classes held the third family night. The theme for the family night was “Caught Fishing.”

Families read together during Hawthorne’s third family night on March 1.

Families came in with their fishing gear ready to learn about reading fluency tips and summer learning loss.

After meeting with families, students were able to float from room to room making reading and math games to reinforce kindergarten standards.

Students had the opportunity to make a game where they matched the names and values of coins. They also made an erasable board game where they are able to change the sight words as they learn them.

At the end of the night students had the opportunity to read their new book as a family in one of the kindergarten classrooms.

Each family that attended received a free book from the Southern Minnesota Initiative Foundation and each student also received a summer workbook. The school and its staff would like to thank everyone who was able to attend the family night.
