Literacy

This is a great opportunity to enjoy reading together.  Find time to read to your child, listen to stories together and be a reading role model by reading yourself.  Anything works - magazines, books, newspapers. 
 
Some great online resources for finding things to read are:
Auckland Libraries - for ebooks, Audiobooks, eMagazines. You can join online (for free)
Storytime on RNZ - for listening to picture books and chapter books written in Aotearoa and the Pacific
Te Puna Ngoi online - for many more links to reading resources
 
There are also some great writing competitions happening at the moment.
Te Puna Ngoi Tuhituhi Challenge 
Poetry Box
FaboStory
