The Moose is Loose – and other Family Literacy Events
Join in on the fun events happening during National Family Literacy Week:
- Visit a family literacy display at the library and take home some activity sheets, easy and fun ideas to do at home.
- See a puppet show by Claire and Carla, and sing along with LeRae Haynes at the library on Jan. 24 from 10:45-11:30 a.m. The Moose, Sir-Read-A-Lot, is rumoured to make an appearance!
- Visit a StrongStart Centere (there’s one at Marie Sharpe, Cataline and Mountview Schools). They’re focusing on the importance of rhyme. Children love to play, and when they play with words, and the smaller sounds in words, they are developing an early literacy skill called phonological awareness. Recognizing when words rhyme and and hearing the beginning sounds of words are parts of this skill set. We will be playing rhyming games and activities, reading rhyming stories and singing lots of rhymes and songs.
- January 26. The Moose will be Loose in Williams Lake. Look for Sir-Read-A-Lot roaming the streets of Williams Lake.
- Participate in Family Fest. This free event is on Jan. 29, from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. in the Gibraltar Room, right next door to the Winter Carnival. There are lots of great activities for the whole family to enjoy!
