Raleigh families invited to visit Letterland
In schools across the Wake County Public School System (WCPSS), early learners are partly taught how to read by using phonics, and during an upcoming Raleigh event, they will have a chance to see phonics come to life.
The Letterland Adventure Day, which is intended to help improve a child’s literacy skills, will introduce them to an assortment of characters. All of them have been designed to be bright, colorful, and engaging, and each has its own special story to share.
According to the district, it expects that as many as 15,000 people will take part in the morning’s activities,. Upon arrival, they will receive a hearty welcome from Firefighter Fred, who will have his own real fire truck. Clever Cat, Annie Apple, and Bouncy Ben will also be on hand, as well as Impy Ink, Noisy Nick, Talking Tess, and several other alliterative characters. A local reading and spelling tutor in Raleigh can help any boy or girl who can use some assistance with his or her literacy skills.
Each of the characters will also have an associated activity. For example, Clever Cat will be paired with a carousel, Impy Ink will offer face painting, and Talking Tess will have a train. There will also be games, such as Munching Mike’s Bean Bag Toss, and food from Pullen Place Café will be available for purchase.
Pullen Park will be transformed into Letterland to host this function, which has been planned for this Saturday, May 6. Local families are all welcome to join in the excitement of the day. More information can be found on the WCPSS website.
