Roots of Literacy
Just like a tree must have the foundation of its roots to grow, a child requires a foundation in order to read and write. From the day children are born they are building this foundation, called early literacy.
Family Literacy Day- 20 in 2020
January 27, 2020Family Literacy Day was created by ABC Life Literacy Canada to raise the importance of reading and engaging in other literacy-related activities as a family. When families engage in literacy activities together, children learn that reading is important and valued. This year we are challenging families to spend 20 minutes each day in 2020 focusing on early learning and reading. Here are some ideas to get you started:
