I’m all ready for The Literacy Connection next week in Dublin, Ohio. I can hardly wait to see some favorite friends + meet some new friends. Are you going to be there? If so, please make sure to say hello. I also have to admit that I’m super excited about the visuals for this workshop. I pushed myself to depend on a little text + a lot of image to share my ideas.
Plus I picked up this new “chalky” font, ERASER. Dafont dot com is my all-time favorite font website. Just consider yourself warned: It is a dangerous. You may soon have hundreds of fonts on your computer.
Christy Rush-Levine wrote a post a few weeks ago called “Four Words.” It’s about encouraging and accepting young adolescents when they write unapologetically. This is a must read for all writing teachers. I hope you don’t miss it.
Mary Helen Gensch has a new addition to her family. Mary Helen expected to be the one caring for and changing the life of a foster pup, but instead Harley is teaching her important truths of life. I can’t wait for her to write more about this cute little pup.
I bought a few Love Calcutta Arts journals this week for gifts. I like it when my shopping makes a difference in the world. Love Calcutta Arts is dedicated to helping young girls in the red light district of Calcutta, India develop a skill in order to gain economic freedom.
And don’t forget — the Carnivores giveaway ends Sunday at 8 pm.
