On January 27, Golden families filled up the Kicking Horse Movie Theatre to celebrate the 7th annual Family Literacy Day.
The Kicking Horse movie theatre generously donated the space and movie! Students from Alexander Park and Lady Grey Elementary Schools voted to watch Ice Age 4: Continental Drift and they really enjoyed it.
Before families watched the movie, they were able to choose a free book and win prizes for answering questions about family literacy.
Families learned about the different ways they could learn together and how watching a movie could be fun and educational.
There was even a tongue twister competition, which Chloe Hood won for creating the most challenging tongue twister using the name of 1 of the characters in the movie–“Sumo Sid slowly slid” (Try saying it three times fast – it’s not easy!)
To entice families to talk about the movie afterwards, families were given a chance to win four movie tickets by writing a review about the movie and submitting it to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 1.
