Connecting Families through Community: An English as a Second Language (ESL) Family Literacy Project – Child's Guide (2012)

This is one of the resources developed through an English as a Second Language (ESL) family literacy project carried out by university researchers with input from newcomer families.

This document is the children’s component of the program. It is divided into 10 modules, dealing with such topics as recreation and leisure; friendship; homework; community safety; and health.

Each module contains activities to help children improve their English skills and, at the same time, learn more about their new home.

The material can be adapted for children of various ages. For instance, several activities offer participants the choice of writing about something or drawing a picture.

The authors have included tips on making new friends, along with several games that emphasize teamwork and other social skills.
