Everyone loves a good deal – that’s why Nichols Elementary Good News Ambassador, Dena Duignan presented “Literacy Learning - Dollar Store Hacks” during their Family Literacy Night. For only a dollar you can change the trajectory of your child's reading growth. Teachers at Nichols Elementary taught students, parents and other community members how for just a $1 investment, they can motivate their child to read in the comfort of their own home. White boards, journals, books, word searches, and other learning games were given out as prizes to those learning community members who joined. Parents and students were also treated to a spaghetti dinner to illustrate how family time can also be a teachable moment.
