Literacy begins with reading and starts at a young age in school

March 25, 2023

Kapawe’no First Nation – We are taking steps at Kapawe’no Nêhiyawak Kiskinahamâtowikamik in literacy. Literacy is the ability to read, write, speak and listen in a way that lets us communicate effectively and make sense of the world.

Reading is one of the first steps of it. We believe our future relies on a solid learning foundation ag a young age.
Students from K4 enjoy their reading time with teacher Mrs Lori Willier. Our Grade 6&7 students have been joining in during their reading sessions.

Book review:
Aaron grows his hair long to look like his father. When it starts to annoy him, he says, “Hair I hate you!” The hair jumps off his head and runs away. With Aaron in frantic pursuit, it attaches itself to just about everyone and everything, resulting in a huge traffic jam.

About the author:
