Parent Involvement Preschool Backpacks



     The Title I preschoolers in the Tidewater area, take home a Title I Learning Backpack at the beginning of each month.  The purpose of the Learning Backpacks is to provide parents with materials to help their children learn and practice the skills needed to prepare them for Kindergarten.  The backpacks are filled with fun, learning activities for families and their preschoolers to do together. 

     The preschoolers take their backpacks home at the beginning of the month and return them at the end.  They receive a new backpack filled with different books and activities each month.  Each backpack includes some of the following items:
  • Wipeoff board and  marker to use to  practice writing numbers and letters

  • Scissors, crayons, pencil and glue to practice fine motor skills

  • Alphabet, counting, and nursery rhyme books  

  • Letter and letter sound practice activities
