I’ve added a new resource to my Parents page on our school website: The Day By Day SC Family Literacy Calendar. Each month has a theme, and within that theme the daily topic is supported by books, songs, games, and craft ideas. The resources are aimed at young children, with an emphasis on Kindergarten readiness skills, but many of the activities are suitable for older kids as well.
This is just one of several family resources provided through the S.C. State Library. Others include the Read With Me site, where you’ll find fabulous family reading resources; Let’s Get Crafty, which shares ideas for arts and crafts projects; Places in SC, with an interactive map highlighting family-friendly activities in each county in the state; and Be Healthy. to assist families with health, exercise, and nutrition information. Parents might also be interested in the Family Friendly Standards page.
We round off the S.C. State Library offerings with The Reading Rooster Recommends (now available on Streamline SC), ReadSC (The S.C. Center for the Book), StudySC (providing South Carolina resources for students), and of course DISCUS (providing reference resources for students).
