What is Family Literacy?
Family literacy is the way parents, children and other family members
learn together at home and in their community. Family literacy programs
involve everyone in the family. They help to increase both children’s
and adults’ literacy levels through informal learning.
Examples of family literacy include:
- Baking together
- Talking together
- Traditional on-the-land activities
- Reading a story
- Telling a story
- Reading labels in the grocery store
- Singing songs or saying rhymes
- Talking about the family
