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!
What is Family Literacy?
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.
