Lincoln Public Schools | Life ‘Wonders’

i (7)

Increasing curiosity for math and reading subjects were a top priority when Lincoln Public Schools families joined together at Everett Elementary to celebrate National Family Literacy Month with its Toyota Family Learning participants.

The program included stations focused on reading, math and creating curiosity through questions.  Parents learned an ‘at-home reading strategy’ to help guide quality reading time with their children. They were also taught math strategies that allow parents and children to see a problem visually. Parents and children used Wonderopolis to create and answer their own ‘wonders’ in life.

“When parents and children learn together, it makes the education process more fun,” said Monica Asher, student/parent program coordinator at Lincoln Public Schools. “When we are able to get the entire family involved in learning with things like reading and math, it benefits the entire household.”

Each November – National Family Literacy Month – we lift up and celebrate the tireless efforts of family literacy and family-focused programs, and this year we’re shining a spotlight on 10 of NCFL’s partner organizations as they host family learning events in communities across the U.S.
