Families flocked to the Fulton Education Center gymnasium the night of Oct. 24 to see Mother Goose and participate in a variety of learning activities during UPK Family Literacy Night.
Carri Waloven, the district’s director of UPK and literacy, said the event is an opportunity to bring families together in a fun learning environment.
The event is held three times throughout the school year, and Thursday’s marked the first one of 2013-14.
Waloven said the event, which incorporates math, reading and kinesthetic activities, is just another resource the district offers its 156 UPK students.
Students read with Mother Goose, made horns after reading “Little Boy Blue,” stacked blocks, colored, did crafts and worked on their counting and math skills during the hour-long literacy night. To cap off the evening, students picked out a book to bring home and read.
