February literacy fun for the whole family

Do your adult learners have kids? The Reading is Fundamental website  focuses on early literacy resources for families and children. The monthly calendars, in English and Spanish, for kids ages 0-5 and 6-15 are my favorite resource on the site—the calendars offer simple, daily literacy activities.  Here’s a few ideas from February’s calendar for younger kids…

February 11: Trace your foot and your child’s foot. Talk about the different sizes.

February 15: Tell your child three things you love about her. 

February 20: Help your child count the syllables in his name.

These activities reinforce your student’s literacy skills and remind moms and dads that they are their children’s first teachers.  Enjoy!
