Here's To Sharing


My love and excitement for children's literature has brought MyLMNOP to the attention of  Terry Doherty.  Terry is a collaborator on the blog,  Share A Story/ Shape A Future.  SaS has asked MyLMNOP to participate in their annual literacy blog tour!  EXCITED!!  For four years, these kindreds of children's literature have used the power of the web to promote and display the talents, skills, and knowledge of kidlit enthusiasts.  This venue brings together creative thinkers who share ideas, opinions, and strategies on how to effectively create an environment that inspire wonder, promote questioning, and encourage exploration in readers!  This year's theme focuses on The Culture of Reading.  The tour runs March 5 - 9.  

Here's what other participants are sharing.  Please drop by each of these blogs and immerse yourself in the excitement of this event!

This annual lit tour has proven an amazing vehicle in bringing together those working to build a generation of avid readers.  I am proud to be asked to join in spreading the good news about children and their energetic engagement in literature.  Again, on Thursday, March 8th, look for my post on  Share A Story/ Shape A Future entitled MyLMNOP__My Process My Journey.

This lit tour coincides with another great event of which the students at Legacy Academy  (one of my ECE__Early Childhood Education facilities) will participate:

World Read Aloud Day is only two days away! If you'd like to participate, go here
for fun activities and other fun downloadables.  Wait, is downloadable a word?  I have shared with my early learners at Legacy Academy  about being a guest on Share A Story/ Shape A Future  as well as our participation in .  They are excited and even want to start their own blog!  How wonderful is that!  Legacy Academy and MyLMNOP are excited and eager to share a look into how our enthusiasts engage in this literacy program. My blog post will be featured here and on Share A Story/ Shape A Future.  Additionally, I'll post photos of our World Read Aloud activities.  I hope to have you come by and take a look.  We'll have a video, pictures, and testimonials from Legacy Academy and share how  MyLMNOPers have fun with reading!
