Teaming Up For Family Literacy

Babylon Memorial Grade School students and families recently came together to celebrate literacy in a fun and interactive way. During the school’s second annual Family Literacy Game Night, attendees had the chance to play a number of fun games while brushing up on some basic literacy skills.

Starting with Scattergories, participants practiced their creative-thinking skills as they were given an initial letter and worked to identify and spell the highest number of objects within a set of categories. They then rotated between five classrooms to play Upwords, Apples to Apples Junior, Hedbanz, Boggle and Jeopardy. These games inspired the groups to use and improve vocabulary, spelling and critical thinking abilities in a fun-filled way.

At the end of the program, students received a packet of literacy activities and a prize bag.
