Literacy and Me

I am joining Jay at This Is My Truth Now in an August Children’s Books Marathon. During the month of August participants will read and review “assigned” children’s books (which were voted on and selected by bloggers and followers of his website) on their own blogs.  Don’t have a blog? Don’t worry, you can participate here by posting your reviews on this site.  Just write your review in the Leave a Comment box at the end of each post.  Here is a list of the books to be reviewed and the dates by which you are to post/share your review.  You can read all the books or a few, or just one of them. Your reviews will be read and commented on by readers of Literacy Lessons.

Picture Books Read 8/4 to 8/9 and post review on 8/10

This year (2019) finds me with 50 years of teaching "under my belt." I have taught all levels from pre-K "(library lady" or "book lady"--volunteer) to juniors, seniors, and graduate students enrolled in my Advanced Writing class at the university where I have just completed 30 years. My first paying teaching job was junior high, and I spent 13 years with ages 12-13, the "difficult years." I had some of the "funnest" experiences with this age group. When I was no longer the "young, fun teacher," I taught in an elementary school setting before sixth graders went on to junior high, teaching language arts blocs, an assignment that was a "dream-fit" for me. After completing graduate school in my 40s, I went on to community college, then university teaching. Just as teaching is "in my blood," so is a passion for reading, writing, libraries, and everything bookish. This blog will be open to anyone who loves books, promotes literacy and wants to "come out and play."
