More Details

ThThese packets are plastic bags with sheets of instructions and materials necessary for the parents and children to work on a project together. They can either be done here on site at Mi Escuelita or they can be done offsite at your location. We need 3,600 packets done every month, so we are happy to have a group come and assemble.

Why it helps: We improve literacy in three ways: child literacy (what we teach in the classrooms), parent literacy (activities that help parents learn English or improve their own education), and family literacy time, aka homework time! Every night the parent is expected to spend 20 minutes working on homework with their child. Three nights a week they check out books from our library and read to them, and the other two nights a week they work together on projects for school. These packets give the parents and children a project to work on together that enhances the parent-child bond, the activity makes the parent a partner in their child’s education, and setting aside the time each school night establishes a nightly homework routine for the family.ese packets include instructions sheets and materials necessary for the parents and children to work on a project together at home.

We need 3,600 packets done every month, so we are always in need of groups to help with this important part of our program.
