This week is Family Literacy Week! Although at school we promote the importance of focussing on literacy skills everyday and every week, each year, a week in January has been dedicated to promoting literacy at home as well. Families all over Canada and many countries throughout the world join us in promoting this focus.
At WPS we will be having a Literacy Day for our students on Wednesday. Older children will be reading buddies for younger children and together they will be working on a collaborative literacy activity. Our students always love the opportunity to work and learn with different grades. It will also by PJ spirit day! So, send your child to school in their comfortable pajamas so they can snuggle down while they read. We will share more about this very popular day in blogs later this week. So stay tuned for some cute pictures!
We will also be posting different resources and suggestions throughout the week that you can use to help you support your children develop their literacy skills. We hope you find them helpful and that you too will take the time to focus on reading and literacy skills with your children this week and every week. See the quick video below from last year that's still valid today.
Happy Family Literacy Week!
