I will soon be contributing (woo-hoo!!) to a really awesome online resource for teachers and parents called Literacy Lava.
Here’s the skinny:
Making literacy part of our everyday family life is often just a matter of remembering. We need to make sure our kids see that reading, writing, and communicating are important to us, and give them lots of opportunities to participate too.
Literacy Lava 2 is a free magazine that will bring you ideas: for motivating reluctant readers, for literacy on the go, for developing the imagination muscle, for linking math and literacy, for having a pirate party and a book picnic, for rhymes, games, activities and more!
Brought to you by bloggers and writers who are passionate about children’s literature and literacy, Literacy Lava 2 is erupting with no- or low-cost activities parents can do with kids to promote literacy.
Coming September 1 to Susan Stephenson’s The Book Chook blog!
I cannot help myself when I find something literacy-related, created by really cool and talented people, geared at making it easy for parents to incorporate at home, and made especially to promote learning in our little guys. It’s awesome, and I’m totally excited to be a part of it!
