National Family Literacy Day

We celebrated National Family Literacy Day in our classroom on Monday, January 27.  We invited our families to join us at the beginning of our day and participate in special activities.  We did a non-fiction scavenger hunt, compared our hands to a gorilla's in the book Actual Size, played games, and thought about literacy in our own homes.  We had moms, dads, brothers, sisters, grandmas, and grandpas join us and we loved sharing this time together!

Here we are spinning spinners to help us talk about fiction before, during, and after reading.

Family Games are full of reading, writing, and speaking!  What are your favourite games to play?

We shared some really special thoughts about how literacy in our homes looks like, sounds like, and feels like.

We loved asking questions while playing Headbanz!

We were lucky to wrap up the day with Flashlight Reading with our Big Buddies in the gym.  It was a peaceful feeling to cozy up with our favourite books and friends!  Happy National Family Literacy Day everyone!
