Lifelong Learning:

It’s Essential

The suggestion in the new Literacy Council booklet, Children Need Play Every Day, to let children take the lead during play struck a chord with me.

It’s easy for adults to forget how to really play.  Sometimes we let product take over process or play.  We need to be reminded to just let things happen.

National Family Literacy Day is quickly sneaking up on us.   If you’re in the same situation, you’ll be happy to find new resources up on our website to help you celebrate.

We produced a new booklet called, Children Need Play Every Day.  It’s a great handout and discussion tool for parents. 

We also created a colourful family literacy infographic that talks about what family literacy is and why it’s important.  We hope you’ll share this with family, friends, work colleagues and perhaps even your Member of the Legislative Assembly.  It’s important that everyone realize the importance and long-term benefits of family literacy.

The New Year is when we resolve to do better and be better.  The NWT Literacy Council is no different. 

We have a link to our blog on our new website, but during 2013 blogging regularly got pushed off the side of everyone’s desks in light of more urgent tasks.  2014 will be different!  We WILL blog. 

We want our blog to be a place we can raise literacy issues and share information.  We want it to be interactive and stimulate discussion.  We welcome ideas for topics for our blog and guest bloggers.

Here are the books that folks at the NWT Literacy Council are giving, or hope to receive, this Christmas.

We expect that anyone developing a new website will feel like we do right now – whew! Finally! Working on a new website requires lots of attention to details and strong communication with the developer.

We hope that you can find what you want more easily on our new website.  People are often surprised at how much is on our site.  We have dozens and dozens of resources to help family, adult and community educators and program coordinators do their jobs.  There are great ideas for parents and anyone interested in literacy or education.
