Share a Story Shape a Future 2010

March 8, 2010

Don't miss a day of this year's Share a Story — Shape a Future 2010 Blog Tour. This year the theme is "It takes a village to raise a reader." Each day you can start your "tour" from the homepage of the blog tour.

The tour runs from March 8 — 12, 2010.

The homepage of the blog tour outlines the schedule (excerpted below), and includes many links and read aloud resources. Enjoy!

Day 1 — The Many Faces of Reading
Topics of the day will encompass the relationship aspect of helping children learn to read: parent-child and teacher-parent partnerships, literacy outreach; and libraries, to name a few.

Day 2 — Literacy My Way/Literacy Your Way
Creative literacy in all its forms (writing, art, computers) will be the topic of the day.

Day 3 — Just the Facts: The Nonfiction Book Hook
This is the day for exploring the different genres of nonfiction (biography and memoir, science, nature, math, etc), as well as the use (or not) of historical fiction.

Day 4 — Reading Through the Ages: Old Faves & New Classics
Topics include "boy books" and "girl books," as well as newer titles that fit with some classics we loved as kids.

Day 5 — Reading for the Next Generation
Join us as we talk about how to approach reading when your interests and your child's don't match. It may be that you don't like to read but your child does, how to raise the reader you're not, and dealing with the "pressure" of feeling forced to read.
