Literacy for Parents: Raising a Reader


What is literacy?

Literacy is the ability, confidence and willingness to engage with language to acquire, construct and communicate meaning in all aspects of daily living. Research has shown that children who have opportunities to read at home with their parents, and to be read to, can build positive attitudes toward language and lay an important foundation for future learning. Home is where a child's love of reading can grow!

Literacy development from Kindergarten to Grade 12 is a major strategic goal for Garden Valley School Division, and the division is excited to be partnering with parents in this endeavor. Please visit our literacy resources for parents to see how you can help your child to become a good reader.
