What is the purpose of Early Literacy: An Activity Guide for Families
Parents are a child’s first teacher and learning happens in the everyday moments you share with your child. Together, with a strong home-school connection, we can support the development of early literacy skills and set our children up for future success.
This guide is intended to be a springboard of sample activities. If your child finds an activity too challenging, then simply modify it or consider returning to it at a later time. Parents are encouraged to have fun with their children and be creative. You are invited to share your ideas and experiences using our hashtag on Twitter: #homeRSHWDSB
In this guide, the word parent refers to parents, guardians, caregivers and other family members who support the development of early literacy skills.
