Literacy Lava 5, Out Now

The fifth issue of Literacy Lava, a free pdf for parents or anyone who wants kids to love reading, writing and communicating, is now available from my website. Clicking on this link will take you to the exact page where you just have to click the cover of Literacy Lava 5 to download it as a pdf.

In this fifth edition of Literacy Lava, you’ll find ideas for helping kids develop spelling skills, ways to pair fiction and non-fiction read-alouds, ideas for letter writing with your kids, whether graphic novels are real reading, how to unwrap a picture book, tips for a loving bed-time story ritual, how to help your video-loving kid to love reading too, and all about encouraging kids to write poetry. Don’t forget to check out the Online Extras page, and the Activity page for kids.

Admittedly as editor of Literacy Lava I am likely to be prejudiced, but I believe contributors have come up with more fantastic articles in this issue. I hope you'll take the time to read, tweet, and send the link to anyone you think would find it useful.

 Literacy Lava - get it while it's HOT!

    Melissa, I'm thanking you in return! Without great contributors like yourself bringing us articles to make us think, act and share, Literacy Lava would be a shell!
