Feb. 26 – Tell a Fairytale Day


While reading another blog a few days ago, I learned that tomorrow, February 26, is “Tell a Fairytale Day”. Who knew? I love the idea of telling a fairytale. To me this implies reciting a traditional tale the way you remember it or making one up yourself. Either way is valuable. Kids love it when grown-ups share their sense of fun, creating and adding voices and sounds as they go along. When time is short, and you’re looking for a easy way to interact with your child and foster literacy, try this approach. Remember, literacy skills involve reading, writing, speaking and listening. Anything you can do to build these skills will pay off for your child.  Happy TAFD!
