So my essential question for the class and this school year is: "How can I use digital tools to provide parents with resources they need to help their child with reading skills at home?"

At the end of last year I realized that I was not connecting like I needed to with one of the major groups in my elementary school, the parents. So this past summer I started planning and brainstorming how I could reach this group. I wanted to help them see that the media center is there for them also and help give them tools to help their child(ren) develop a love of reading. I am planning to hold quarterly afternoon reading events with parents and students. I am going to read a favorite book and then split the groups into reading stations. I spoke with the public librarian and she is planning to come to one of the events also. This would also be a great time to share a collection of online sites and activities that they can use to help their child at home.
