The Learning Exchange has been busy since March reaching out to the 11 Sir Wilfrid Laurier Elementary schools in the Laval area to offer lots of family literacy goodies to the children and families of their school! Each school is offered an interactive reading and musical visit featuring Enza and Shawny. Every student from pre-Kindergarten through to grade 6 will receive a book and 1000 lucky children, pre-k to grade 2, will also get TLE’s Move into Literacy Kits! Watch for more updates and pictures as we continue to visit schools up to December 2024!!

A PLAY to LEARN
MOVE into LITERACY activity

Going on a scavenger hunt while hiking is an excellent way to engage children with their learning. They can learn more about nature, colours, numbers, categorizing and much more, including problem-solving, creativity and collaboration.

Follow/print the infographic for a fun scavenger hunt or as a family, make up your own to do together.

Yoga improves health in many ways. Family yoga gives families a chance to spend some quality time together. Yoga and mindfulness offer psychological benefits for children as well. A growing body of research has already shown that yoga can improve focus, memory, self-esteem, academic performance, and classroom behaviour, and can even reduce anxiety and stress in children.

This is a Super Mario Bros PLAY to LEARN activity for the family.

A kids’ Mario workout is an exercise routine that incorporates elements from the popular video game “Super Mario Bros”. This can involve exercises inspired by Mario’s actions in the game such as:

1. Squat Jumps – Like Mario’s jumping action.

2. Sideways Shuffles – Mimicking Mario’s side to side movements.

3. Stair Steps – Mario often climbs stairs, this could be simulated with step-ups.

4. Push Ups – Borrowed from Mario’s action of pushing items.

5. Plank – to stimulate Mario’s swimming action.

Use our Move into Literacy video with children to: 

1. Make kids active – Keeping them fit and healthy.

2. Improve skills – Boosts balance and coordination.

3. Build good habits – Encourages a regular exercise routine.

4. Increase focus – Following a routine can enhance concentration.

5. Boost confidence – Tackling and accomplishing workout “levels”.
