Literacy Lava 3 is here!
The latest edition of Literacy Lava, a newsletter for parents and caregivers, is available in PDF form here.
From the editor:
In this third edition of Literacy Lava, you'll find ideas for promoting literacy through inexpensive activities you can do with your kids. Find out what your local library has to offer, read ideas on making books with kids, sneak some learning into shopping, discover games that build literacy skills, develop imagination while playing Grocery Store, make writing part of your family's life, read why picture books are so good for kids, and find out how literacy helped one child fight night terrors. Don't forget to check out the Online Extras page, and the Writing Prompt activity page for kids.
Some highlights for me from this issue include Susan Stephenson's Making Books with Your Kids ideas, the word game suggestions, the grocery list for kids, and the online extras found at the end of the issue.
I hope you enjoy Literacy Lava!
