Parents have an enormous impact on their children's literacy lives. There are opportunities to expose your children to words and language wherever you happen to be. Your children won't even know they are learning!
Check back each week for a new idea to try with your children. Also check out my Must-Have Books for various ages!
It’s that time again… school supplies! Sometimes the lists seem puzzling to parents. As teachers, we have our preferences for organizing supplies during the school year; this may explain specific indications of colour and such. If exact brands are listed, it’s likely because the cheaper versions don’t last. We’re not trying to be picky: just practical!
Whenever possible, take your children with you while shopping for school supplies. Involve them in the process and they may openly (or secretly) become excited about back to school!
