Family Literacy Day January 27th,2012

Today is Family Literacy Day which is a national awareness initiative created by ABC Life Literacy Canada in 1999. It is held each year on January 27 to raise awareness of the importance of reading and engaging in other literacy-related activities as a family.

What do you do on Family Literacy Day? We usually read a couple books or head to the library (if the weather is nice, not this year). This year both my children are in school so we have been working on their writing and reading more than ever. Game nights are another great way to get together with the family have tons of fun and have the kids learn reading and counting skills.

Hasbro Canada has partnered with ABC Life Literacy Canada in support of Family Literacy Day. Great games that help with teaching numeracy skills and literacy are Scrabble, Monopoly and the Game of Life. So why not have a game night tonight!
