A special quick post to say - hope you and your children have a great start to the new school year! As we are all so busy, I especially appreciate you continuing to follow this blog, even as it is often less frequent and regular than I would like. Hopefully late this fall, I'll have a breather and can set a better habit. Please continue to "tune in".
A few new resources:
check out Wonderpolois, the National Center for Family Literacy's great new conversation starter for parents and kids alike. Each day a new short, fun video is posted with something new and interesting to learn.
next, visit your local United Way to find opportunities for you and your child to get involved in volunteering for literacy. Maybe a book drive, maybe tutoring, maybe replenishing a school library, there's always a lot to do and your children learn the important lesson of sharing through one of the most trusted names in nonprofits today. Also check out your chance to brag on a favorite teacher.
Finally, give that teacher a powerful link to a new community just created for them: The Community at Educationworld.com. They can create a profile, join groups (including mine under subjects, language arts K-12), view resources and videos, download lesson plans, read articles from education experts and more. Thanks for sharing.
I'll be back soon with more resources just for PARENTS AND KIDS READING TOGETHER.
