Happy Family Literacy Day

In honour of Family Literacy Day, ABC Life Literacy Canada offers five suggestions on how you can embrace daily learning opportunities:

  1. Attend a local Family Literacy Day event in your community. Visit http://www.FamilyLiteracyDay.ca for event listings.
  2. When making your grocery list, have your child write out the items you need to buy.
  3. When cooking dinner, involve your children in measuring the ingredients. This helps them understand fractions and measurements.
  4. In the car, sing along to songs on the radio. Singing encourages learning patterns of words, rhymes and rhythms, and is strongly connected to language skills.
  5. When playing a board game, read the instructions aloud to each other or count how many spaces to travel around the board.
