In this video, a young mother gets some advice on how to incorporate literacy learning into everyday life.
The coordinator of family literacy for the Saskatchewan Literacy Network (SLN) explains that the world is full of opportunities for learning. For example, a parent can describe plants and animals observed on a walk in the woods, then ask the child about what he has observed.
