Engaging PTA Events for Parental Involvement: Family Fun Nights
Math & Movement Family Fun Nights are fun PTA events that increase parental involvement, student engagement, and achievement. Family Fun Nights are high-energy math and reading events. During Family Fun Nights, parents can learn about kinesthetic and play-based methods. Before the event begins, we train volunteers to operate stations and lead activities. In addition to adult volunteers, older students can improve their skills by volunteering to help younger students. Throughout the event, parents and children move from station to station engaging in kinesthetic activities. In this way, parents see firsthand how the children can use fun floor mats and wall charts to learn math and reading concepts. At Family Fun Nights, parents learn how their child learns best! The two-hour event boosts students’ confidence in math and reading skills – and parents have fun, too!
