St. Charles Catholic Elementary Celebrate Family Literacy Day

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.’
