Parent/Family Flyer Assignment – It’s time for another flyer! Something I love about this course is that you have less essay-type assignments and more practical “use this in your classroom tomorrow” assignments. I encourage you to use the Microsoft Word flyer templates. They are free, easy to use, and look professional! Here are just some of the flyers that you can access in Word:
You will name and describe four activities that encourage family involvement, but remember that this is a flyer, so those descriptions will be brief.
Parent and family involvement is crucial in early childhood education. Creating strong partnerships with families will help support young children in their development. It is up to the early childhood educator to facilitate these partnerships and to encourage parent and family involvement. For this assignment, you will create a flyer for parents using the “Flyers” template in Microsoft Word. You must create an engaging and interesting flyer that will entice parents to become involved in the classroom. Identify and describe at least four activities that will encourage parent/family involvement. When choosing your activities, review Chapter 6 to ensure that your ideas are culturally sensitive. You are required to include at least one activity that is discussed in Chapter 6. Provide a title and a short description for each activity. Include one scholarly source in addition to the text to support your activities. The flyer should be no longer than two pages. Be sure to include APA formatted references for the textbook and the additional scholarly source on the bottom of the flyer.
TURNITIN SCORE MUST BE AT OR BELOW 20%…as I will be checking.
