November is the month for two observations that are integrally related to adult literacy and adult education. National Family Literacy Month Founded in 1994 by the National Center for Families Learning, this observation "offers an opportunity for practitioners to emphasize the important role that families play in the education of their children," according to the NCFL. Over the past several decades, researchers across the country have recognized the strong correlation between parents’ and caregivers’ educational attainment and children’s educational outcomes.

As an Adult ESL teacher, I got tired of using k-12 posters so I started my first company - ESL Supplies. It offers visual aids to teach adult ESL and Literacy students. Examples come from essential survival English words These are also appropriate for some special ed and high school purposes. Please pass the word along. Below is just one example.
