Family literacy can look very different from one household to another. There is no “right” way for families to embrace literacy practices such as reading, writing, speaking, singing, and listening. Family literacy has moved beyond filling out reading logs and setting the timer for 20 minutes. Instead, practicing the principles of literacy can include:

  • Playing a word game like Scrabble
  • Listening to a favorite musical artist and singing along
  • Visiting a museum and talking about the best parts of the exhibit
  • Telling favorite family memories while others listen

Honoring how families engage in literacy is empowering for them, and important for student growth. Engage, empower, elevate, and extend student literacy with INFOhio.
