Literacy Lava: promoting literacy with children

Books are big in our house. We love to read them and review them, and in my case, try  to write them. I’ve encountered a number of great book blogs online supporting children’s literature. One of my favourite’s is Susan at  The Book Chook.

Beyond her insightful and entertaining blog, The Book Chook has teamed up with other writers and bloggers with a passion for children’s literature and created Literacy Lava, a digital magazine (in pdf format) full of great tips and literacy activities for parents and their kids. Oh and the best part…it’s absolutely FREE!

The second issue, Literacy Lava 2, is scheduled to go live September 1. Here’s what you can expect:

LitLava_2Making literacy part of our everyday family life is often just a matter of remembering. We need to make sure our kids see that reading, writing, and communicating are important to us, and give them lots of opportunities to participate too.

Literacy Lava 2 is a free magazine that will bring you ideas: for motivating reluctant readers, for literacy on the go, for developing the imagination muscle, for linking math and literacy, for having a pirate party and a book picnic, for rhymes, games, activities and more!

 Brought to you by bloggers and writers who are passionate about children’s literature and literacy, Literacy Lava 2 is erupting with no- or low-cost activities parents can do with kids to promote literacy.

Be sure to visit The Book Chook September 1 to get your copy, just in time for back to school. You can also get your copy of Literacy Lava 1 there too if you missed it.
