ABSTRACT
The article discusses the literacy program from Grandma's Eye at the Stewart Russell community school in Regina, Saskatchewan. Grandma's Eye began in 2005 when the Regina Family Literacy Network (RFLN) started discussing with community partners about the need in the community. Crystal Clark, the executive director of the RFLN, said that the essential part of the program was the presence of facilitator Elder Elsie Ross who spent eight weeks with grade 1 and 2.
