Parents want to help their children be successful in school. For some parents, building their own literacy skills, which may include increasing English language skills, is a great first step.
The Winnipeg Free Press newspaper provides authentic reading material for students. News articles provide facts and opinions and advertisements may help with math skills. Crossword puzzles are there to help increase vocabulary.
Newspapers also make us aware of the perpetual need for volunteers and resources. Requests for services can be found in the local news section or classified ads. Talking about community issues featured in the newspaper, help shape children to become better global citizens.
