In this COVID world, families are at home together working, learning and managing as best they can in difficult circumstances. For UNESCO World Book and Copyright Day on 23 April, we are celebrating and highlighting the opportunities in the every day lives of families for parents to support young children learning to read and write.
We have produced 7 short videos on how families can support young children with their literacy during the school shutdown.
They will be available from Thursday for all to see and share on the TCD Youtube playlist “Literacy on the Loose”
