St. Christopher Catholic School Celebrates Family Literacy Day


January 31, 2011 - On Friday, January 28th/11 St. Christopher School highlighted literacy by celebrating Family Literacy Day. The theme for this year’s event was Play for Literacy. Activities included: Primary students working with Junior students in order to share a favourite book; collaborative posters created from the shared reading and displayed in the gym; students engaged in board games and word games that encourage literacy development; and, the entire school completing a giant crossword to wrap-up the day’s activities. Current research points to the importance of play in supporting literacy. ABC Life Literacy Canada suggests that, “Games provide a fun outlet for children of all ages to engage in activities that provide opportunities to improve reading and comprehension skills.”

The day was a great success for students, teachers and parents! A huge thank you to Mrs. Di Gioseffo for co-ordinating and organizing the day.
