Literacy Lava 8, Out Now!

Can you believe this is the eighth edition of Literacy Lava? Again it's erupting with tips for parents and teachers, suggesting ideas for incorporating literacy and learning into our every day. We also have some new contributors this time, and lots of great ideas.

In this eighth edition, you’ll find suggestions for developing plot in Writing Tips for Kids, storytelling as a way to bring literacy front and centre in kids’ lives, how to get kids reading, how different aged siblings share read-aloud time, great tips for a toddler book club, ideas for encouraging creative thinking in children, and how to help kids collect words. As usual, there are nine great free online resources I recommend for reading writing and creating, and the Activity page for kids is a pencil and paper game called Categories.

Literacy Lava 8 is available as a free download in pdf format at my website. You'll also find The Book Chook Cookbook, Literacy in the Playground and an archive of Literacy Lava 1-7 to download and read at your leisure.

Please help us spread the word about the importance of children's literacy by promoting this post on Facebook, Twitter etc or emailing it to someone you know.
