Sing for Literacy, Family Literacy Day January 27, 2010


Why Singing?
Family Literacy Day is all about brushing up on your literacy skills in fun and different ways! There are so many activities you can do to practice your literacy skills, such as following a recipe, reading a road map or singing from a song sheet. Singing is a great literacy activity for families because it provides a fun way to expand spoken vocabulary and creates a strong bond. Singing allows you to learn patterns of words, rhymes and rhythms, and is strongly connected to language skills.
