In Canada Family Literacy Day is January 27th and in the United States it is on November 1st, but any time is a good time to make reading and writing fun for the family. 

Print out the Family Theme Day Planner and decide which activities you’d like to do and in what order.

Family Literacy Day

Family literacy, or inter-generational literacy, is a term used to describe parents and children (or adults and children) learning together. The roots of family literacy come from the belief that “the parent is the child’s first teacher." By reading and writing together as a family, one improves the reading and writing skills of all family members.   It encourages life-long learning and strengthens family relationships at the same time!

Besides the children’s alphabet song (“A B C D E F G ....”) I couldn’t think of songs or rhymes related specifically to reading and writing.  If you can think of one please email us at familythemedays@gmail.com or on Twitter or Facebook!
