Have you ever tracked your reading escapades on a map or globe? I decided to do this, like five seconds ago, to check out where I’ve been since August! I traveled by train from New York to Wisconsin to Louisiana and then back to Wisconsin. I spent an exciting summer on an island in Maine. And I’m currently hanging out in California with a doozy of a detective (who, by the way, I’m certain is extremely handsome). Ah, the life of a reader!
Because I know y’all celebrate reading and writing way beyond National Literacy Month, I’m counting on you having some favorite literacy center ideas. So in celebration of literacy, each literacy center idea—such as alphabet, phonics, word work, reading response, and writing ideas—posted on this blog this month will be considered for publication in an upcoming book or magazine from The Mailbox. And you know what this means! Each of your original ideas accepted for publication earns you a $20 gift certificate. I’m not saying you can share only one idea. Heck, no! You can share two, three, four, or more favorite ideas and have a chance to earn $40, $60, $80 or more in gift certificates toward The Mailbox publications. Cha-ching! Let’s get this celebration started!
Show me the ideas!
PS Ideas must be posted on this blog before November 1, 2011.
