Family literacy focusses on parents, grandparents and other family members to build the reading and writing skills of the whole family. By reading to children and engaging in fun literacy activities regularly, adults actively keep their own skills sharp and also help children improve their skills. (abc life literacy)

This year, BC’s Family Literacy theme is “Make it count! Play * Sort * Measure.” Numeracy is everywhere and we want to highlight how simple math concepts like sorting, counting, estimating and measuring are used in everyday life. Saanich Peninsula literacy is offering a fun way to experience Family Literacy Week between January 22-29. 2023!
