Building Literacy Skills with SATE

Building Literacy Skills with SATE
Posted on 12/21/2022
On December 8th, Charles H. Hulse Elementary School welcomed parents and guardians of Kindergarten students for a Literacy Session providing practical and fun strategies to develop literacy skills at home.

The session was presented through the OCDSB’s Student Achievement Through Equity (SATE) Inquiry and led by Community Education Liaison Worker Noora Hussein and SATE Learning Coach Sharan Samagh. It provided an opportunity for staff to partner with caregivers to support student learning and well-being.

At the event, parents and caregivers explored ways to support children in learning the alphabet, pencil grip, and printing skills; the importance of talk in their language; and strategies for building vocabulary. Each family received a resource kit to apply these skills at home, including an alphabet chart, directions for letter formation, a notebook, and letter flash cards.

Parents and caregivers appreciated the opportunity to learn more about what their children are learning at school. Here’s some of the feedback they shared:

“I was very happy with yesterday's session because it was very useful and increased my experience on how to teach my child. I am a candidate in such sessions because it is very useful and I will not miss such sessions later.”

“I enjoyed the meeting yesterday and learned a lot from it. Thank you for the cooperation of parents and teachers.”

Thank you to all those who attended, and to all of the SATE and Charles H. Hulse staff who collaborated to make this event possible!
