The ELF Program Aims To Improve Literacy Through Reading
If students are not reading by the end of grade 2 or 3, the chance of it happening after that fall every year.
That from Zoe Watson of the Anglophone South School District who attended the Achieve Literacy breakfast which aims to get the whole community involved in improving the provincial literacy and numeracy rates.
She tells CHSJ News teachers promote reading with and reading to your child adding its like any skill where the more you do it the better you get.
Watson says a program like The Elementary Literacy Friends program which trains volunteers to come into school and read with kids can only help.
They are looking for 100 volunteers to sign up.
