Family Literacy Day
January 27 is Family Literacy day, sponsored by ABC Life Literacy Canada.
From their site: “Family Literacy Day is a national awareness initiative created by ABC Life Literacy Canada in 1999 and held annually on January 27 to raise awareness of the importance of reading and engaging in other literacy-related activities as a family.
Taking time every day to read or do a learning activity with children is crucial to a child’s development. Even just 15 minutes a day can improve a child’s literacy skills dramatically, and can help a parent improve their skills as well.”
Check out their site for family fun activity ideas, brochures and posters. These are great to share with parents in your primary grades.
