Literacy

March Adult Learner Book Club Selection

The March book club selection is Call Me Francis Tucket. This second book in a popular series by Gary Paulsen (a favorite author of Literacy book club!) is another action-packed Western  with galloping horses and one friendly old mule. There are also shooting rifles, heroes, scoundrels, some lost children,  (maybe a few wolves here and there) and prairie ethics.  Gary Paulsen is a Newberry Honor award winning master storyteller whose stories often appeal to reluctant readers.

Bedtime stories are still key to boosting literacy skills

Bedtime stories are still key to boosting literacy skills

“In an increasingly technological world, old-fashioned bedtime stories are still among the best ways to bolster a child's reading skills, say literacy experts.” Great reasons for establishing a family reading time, keeping it separate and special. And once family reading time is set, there are many great ways to build on the good you are doing. Something as simple as following the words on the page with your finger as you read, and as exotic as building a family tree.
