Literacy Lava 7, Out Now!

The latest edition of Literacy Lava is now available at my website. It's exploding with great articles, yet again, including our new column on writing for children, by Aussie author, Dee White.

Inside you'll find ideas for helping kids create characters in their own writing; suggestions for word game fun; secrets about getting dads reading; all about board books for young children; lots of ideas for getting the most from a trip to the art gallery with children; a celebration of the magic of children’s literacy; and ideas to inspire budding writers. And this time, the Activity page for kids was designed by author, illustrator and scientist, Andrea Hazard. Wow!

I hope you enjoy this seventh edition of Literacy Lava. Please help us spread the word about the importance of children's literacy and learning by tweeting and telling others about this post.

    Oh I can't wait to have a look through this latest issue, especially since my class are looking at characterization in narrative writing before the holidays. Good timing!! :)

    What a wonderful collection of articles. It's really hard to pick just one. I loved the idea of art galleries and I giggled my way through the homonyms. The idea of visiting art galleries is brilliant! I would never have thought of that. Bravo ladies!

    Timely indeed, Caroline. We're so lucky to have Dee with us to share her expertise. Thanks for tweeting!

    It never ceases to amaze me how each issue is wonderful, unique too, Terry. And I've already started work on LL8, even have contributions in, so prepare to be stunned all over again on March 1, 2011!
