Family Literacy Week

January 22-29 2023

Every January, families, schools, libraries and communities across BC celebrate Family Literacy Week.

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.

We have a variety of Family Literacy events and activities planned this January on the South Island!

Stay tuned for a full listing of events and activities in your area coming soon!
