Read Kiddo Read!

It is with much excitement that I share with you my new favourite library-related webpage!

James Patterson’s READKIDDOREAD.COM is ‘dedicated to making kids readers for life’. 

I really loved the links in ‘LISTS’ and ‘LESSON PLANS’.  Under ‘lists’ there is an article by Judy Freeman entitled ’12 Tried and True Ways to Get Your Kiddo’s Reading’.  (plz click on each suggestion to read more!)

1. READ ALOUD SOMETHING EVERY DAY
2. LAUGH A LOT AS YOU FOOL AROUND WITH LANGUAGE
3. ACT OUT STORIES.
4. TELL STORIES.
5. ENCOURAGE DRAWING.
6. LEARN A NEW FACT EVERY DAY.
7. ASK AND ENCOURAGE QUESTIONS.
8. GET OUT OF THE HOUSE.
9. LOVE YOUR BOOKS AND YOUR LIBRARY.
10. LOOK FOR OLDIES BUT GOODIES.
11. LOOK FOR WHAT’S NEXT
12. TRUST YOUR INSTINCTS

Also, under ‘lesson plans’, teachers and librarians can click on popular books for children/youth for suggestions and activities to use in classrooms/libraries. I was super impressed by the majority of the activities, especially the one for Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!  I will be using this resource to exchange ideas with other librarians for possible programs and activities.
