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!
