St. Charles Catholic Elementary Celebrate Family Literacy Day

Grade 1 student, Zander Forigo from St. Charles Elementary Catholic School has a great time playing board games with his mom on Family Literacy Day.

January 31, 2012 - On January 27th, Family Literacy Day, parents of St. Charles Catholic Elementary School were invited to attend their child's classroom to play board games as a way to embrace the learning opportunity to practice literacy as a family and spending time together. Family Literacy Day is a national awareness initiative created by ABC Life Literacy Canada in 1999 and held annually on January 27 to raise awareness of the importance of reading and engaging in other literacy-related activities as a family. Grade 1/2 teacher, Mrs. Bardswich says 'taking time every day to read or do a learning activity with children is crucial to a child's development, even just 15 minutes a day can improve a child's literacy skills, and can help a parent improve their skills as well.'
