Abstract

Host a pajama party for elementary school students and families in the evening. Everyone is invited to come in their pajamas to hear bedtime stories and have cookies and milk. Families are encouraged to bring their favorite storybook or offer a favorite oral story in their native language. This activity could be extended to junior high by turning it into a movie night, along with popcorn and other snacks and followed by a discussion of the movie.
