Literacy Lava 8
I am thrilled to announce that I wrote an article for the latest edition of the fantastically wonderful Literacy Lava. Click here to read what I had to say about reading to siblings of different ages.
Susan Stephenson, the editor of Literacy Lava and blogger extraordinaire at The Book Chook writes,
“Can you believe this is the eighth edition of Literacy Lava? Again it’s erupting with tips for parents and teachers, suggesting ideas for incorporating literacy and learning into our every day. We also have some new contributors this time, and lots of great ideas.
In this eighth edition, you’ll find suggestions for developing plot in Writing Tips for Kids, storytelling as a way to bring literacy front and centre in kids’ lives, how to get kids reading, how different aged siblings share read-aloud time, great tips for a toddler book club, ideas for encouraging creative thinking in children, and how to help kids collect words. As usual, there are nine great free online resources I recommend for reading writing and creating, and the Activity page for kids is a pencil and paper game called Categories.”
And as if mere publication weren’t enough, I received wonderful feedback from a super kidlit blogger, Jen Robinson. Her Literacy Roundup is always full of great recommendations and this time around, I was one of them! Click here to read what she had to say.
Happy Reading Everyone!
