Family Literacy Day takes place every January 27th and is intended to raise awareness about the importance of reading and engaging in other literacy-related activities as a family. Tomorrow, Greenfield Elementary will be focusing on various literacy activities throughout the day.
Taking time every day to read or engage in a learning activity with children plays a vital role in their development. Just 15 minutes a day can dramatically improve a child’s literacy skills. Reading, playing a game, telling a joke, following a recipe, discussing a television show or movie are a few of the many possibilities that can be done to support children.
