There are many exciting literacy events coming up in the next few months and I thought I’d share some with you. I will list them in the order in which they take place.

    Great list! Thanks! I’m looking forward to exploring some poetry with my kids next month. I’d like to share some literacy educational fundraisers with you. Here’s a link to find out more information. http://parentandchildreading.com/fundraising-for-schools-and-organizations.html Setting something up before summer starts would be a great way to keep kids learning over the summer. Please share the link with anyone you know interested in helping children keep learning over the summer and raising a little money for a school, organization, or sports team.

    Thanks for taking the time to comment and share, Michelle. Setting something up for summer is so important. One day I hope to write a post about the summer slide and how important it is for students to read over the summer–especially those who are already struggling. In that post, I’m sure I would discuss the SummerReads program that Freddy Hiebert, a highly respected reading researcher, is working on so diligently for this purpose. The texts are free! Here’s a link in case you are interested:
