|Let's Eat Our Way to Literacy|
The Reader's Bill of Rights - and my response to it.
What's the Deal with Online Publishing? - wherein I explain my ongoing obsession with websites that encourage kids to read and write online.
Review, Myths and Legends Website - if you don't know this editor where kids can not only read but create myths and legends in words and images, I urge you to take a look.
The Ruthless Arts of Skimming and Scanning - helping our kids learn not to read word by word when they're doing research.
The Book Chook Plays with Publishing -a little like Glogster, Notaland is probably my favourite place for kids to create digital posters and multimedia presentations.
The Book Chook Makes a Slideshow -another favourite of mine, PhotoPeach lets us play with story by adding images, text and music to make a slideshow.
Making a Book at ToonDoo - I just love ToonDoo, where it's free to create your own cartoons. This article is about using ToonDoo to create a whole digital book.
Let's Eat Our Way to Literacy 1 and Let's Eat Our Way to Literacy 2 - both have ideas for combining food and literacy.
Livebrush - downloadable drawing software.
Use Puppets to Encourage Children's Literacy - reading and writing opportunities centred around children's puppets.
Children's Creativity and Play - great video about creativity, and some websites where kids can create and play.
June 1 is just around the corner, and that means Literacy Lava 9 will be published! If you missed earlier issues of this free pdf for parents erupting with literacy tips, you can grab them at my website.
