Revving Reluctant Readers & Diversifying the Homeschool Plan: Two Posts

I've been using my available pockets of time to work on school auction projects, and with the exception of yesterday's voice lesson, I've neglected music and storytelling for the past two days. I will eventually show you what I've been working on, but I want everything to be completed first. Facebook has been a good outlet for me to post what I've been working on-- I can post a photo in the Things I've Made photo album and be done with it.

In the meantime, here are two literacy-related posts for you to check out:

Author Susan Stephenson of The Book Chook has a good post on Revving Up Reluctant Readers. The accompanying photo is fantastic, too.

Adrienne Furness of What Adrienne Thinks About That has an article on the Lee and Low Books website called Diversify Your Homeschool Plan With Vanishing Cultures. Adrienne is the author of Helping Homeschoolers in the Library, published by the American Library Association.

Isn't it a great photo! She has others in her portfolio I love too. I asked yesterday if I can use another soon for my blog.

Thank you again, Farida for all your help today.

What wonderful literacy-related posts. I want those vanishing cultures books for my sixth graders. I had to immobilize my clicking hand with the words "recession, recession, recession", followed by reminders of our too-old cars, our sinking bathtub and our ancient wiring. No more books!

Thanks for the link, Farida!

Lone Star Ma, The series is available in PB. I don't know if that news will make your decision easier or more difficult. I think we're all in the same boat with money at this point.
