Family Literacy Resources

Winter break is a great time to read with your kids! Learning doesn’t just happen at school; it happens at home, too. The Colorado Department of Education defines family literacy as the following:

Family Literacy

Integrates all the following activities:

  • Parent or family adult education and literacy activities that lead to readiness for postsecondary education or training, career advancement and economic self-sufficiency;
  • Interactive literacy activities between parents or family members and their children;
  • Training for parents or family members on how to be the primary teacher for their children and full partners in the education of their children; AND
  • An age appropriate education to prepare children for success in school and life experiences.
