Starting on Family Literacy Day, January 27th, thanks to a grant from Literacy Quebec, The Learning Exchange was able to hold some Family Literacy activities within the community to promote families reading, writing, learning and web surfing together.
TLE gave away Writing Kit information cards and 150 new Children’s Books from Scholastic. In addition, TLE set up a table at CDC Vimont’s cafeteria to give away over 75 books donated to TLE.
To finish off the week of activities, on January 31st, Family Literacy volunteers visited Twin Oaks Elementary in the Sir Wilfrid Laurier School Board area to read interactive stories with 182 children in Kindergarten to Grade 3. Children were also delighted by a visit from the Cat-in-the-Hat!
