The MA Statewide Family Engagement Center has launched a new series of family literacy calendars, designed to spark conversation and enjoyment for early readers.

A new calendar will be released each month, listing easily accessible read-alouds, online activities, and ideas for playing with language with young children. The activities take inspiration from the seasons, major holidays, and lesser-known special days such as Talk Like a Pirate Day and National Make Your Bed Day. 

We’ll keep all the calendars live so you can explore at your own pace, with new ones added at the start of each month.

The first calendar has been posted! Enjoy!
