Three Red Deer Catholic schools are taking part in Literacy on the Move, a program that places lawn signs around schools that share a story.
This month, the schools will have signs telling the story As Big as the Sky, As Tall as the Trees, by Leah Yardley.
The story portrays the relationship between humans and nature and trying to find that rhythm in the natural world. It also gives a First Nations, Metis and Inuit perspective.
Students at Holy Family School, St. Teresa of Avila School and Maryview School will be invited to walk around the schools and read the story with their families.
“We were excited about the idea of offering this moving story to our students and their families,” said Jackie Weddell, a teacher at Holy Family School.
“It is a great opportunity for our students any time we can combine literacy with physical activity. We hope our students and their families participate in this activity and spend some family time in nature.”
