Looking Back to June Past

DRAMA helps kids communicate!

Towards the end of each month, I like to revisit articles I've written in 2009 and 2010. Not only does this mean new readers of the blog may find something useful otherwise buried in the archives, but it also reminds me of content I can refer to when I write new articles.

June 2009

Cartoonist - Sharing Stories with Cartoons: Creaza's cartoon editor is still one of my favourites, and a great place for children to play with words and images to create a story.

Recycle and Read: All about Arvind Gupta's Toys for Trash site.

Great Online Story Maker: The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh has a really neat online story editor for kids.

Letter to the Book Chook - Dad Won't Read Aloud: A mum is concerned her husband won't read aloud to their son.

June 2010

Turning the Pages: Primary source documents from the British Library.

LEGO and Literacy (1) Skills and ideas LEGO can support.

LEGO and Literacy (2) Using online resources to create LEGO-based stories.

Read Comics Online

The Book Chook loves drama and what it can do for kids. In DRAMA (1) I present what I think Drama lessons can do for kids. In DRAMA (2) I suggest some drama activities you can introduce to family or school to help kids develop creativity and communication skills.

Create a Story Box: Great idea for storytelling and language activities

Should we let kids play with sticks? Sticks and Stones May Break Your Bones

June 1 is just past, and that means Literacy Lava 9 has recently been published! If you missed it, or earlier issues of this free pdf for parents erupting with literacy tips, you can grab them at my website.

NOTE: RSS readers, you've received this content twice. My apologies. The Publish Post button cunningly disguised itself as the Save Now button one night when I should have known better than to be blogging!
