The South Carolina Day by Day Family Literacy Activity Calendar is a useful tool that families, caregivers, educators and librarians can use in the home or classroom to develop early literacy skills; and help young children become prepared for school or do better in school. In order to assist family literacy efforts across South Carolina, the South Carolina State Library launched a perpetual print activity calendar that encompasses books, songs, activities, health information, and family wellness information. There is also an online version that uses multimedia to enhance the content and bring the various components to life. If families or educators can only spend a few minutes, this calendar will give them something they can use to make sure that this is quality time as well as educational time.
Calendars are free of charge to educators and literacy providers to be used in an educational setting. Requests are made and filled based on availability. For large quantities, they can be purchased at an 80% discount. Calendars must be picked up from the State Library. Please contact the State Library for assistance.
*Calendars can be purchased for $10 each with no evaluation required from the website at the State Library Foundation. The South Carolina State Library coordinates with community groups, families and libraries to use the calendar to improve literacy statewide.
