First words (2002)

A Journal of Family Literacy in New Brunswick 1997 – 2001

First Words is the product of contributions by individuals and groups throughout the province of New Brunswick who have a passionate commitment to family literacy.

In this journal, family literacy encompasses all the various ways in which family members develop and use their reading and writing skills in their everyday tasks and activities, such as playing educational games, reading or telling stories, letting children choose their activities, drawing up a shopping list, following a recipe, and writing a letter together. Family literacy also comprises the reading and writing activities that adults do at home for various reasons and their literacy-related discussions, since parents can serve as models in the home.
