Literacy Strong All Year Long: Motivating K–2 Students to Read

Literacy Strong All Year Long: Motivating K–2 Students to Read | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it
Keeping your students motivated and engaged in reading all year long ensures that they’ll grow “literacy strong.” Just like staying in physical shape, students need to participate actively in “workouts” by reading every day and they need to increase the level of intensity of their routines! Whether you are trying to start the year off fresh with gusto, working hard to beat the mid-year blahs, scrambling to finish the year on top, or sending students off into the lazy days of summer with books to read, each season of the year presents its own set of reading challenges. - See more at: http://www.reading.org/literacy-daily/classroom/post/engage/2015/07/01/literacy-strong-all-year-long-motivating-k-2-students-to-read#sthash.tviuY1Ei.dpuf

5 Ways to Help Students Affected by Generational Poverty

5 Ways to Help Students Affected by Generational Poverty | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it

I work with students who are affected by generational poverty on a daily basis. I see many things. I see students who's shoes are held together by electrical tape. I see students who have perfect attendance because the only meals they receive are through the public school's cafeteria. I see pictures that students draw of their "pet rats" that live in their house. One thing I do not see a lot of is help for the educators trying to make a difference in these students' lives.

Redefining literacy for Alabama families - What does a warm coat have to do with reading and writing? Maryann Manning, Ed.D., saw the connection. The internationally renowned author and scholar on literacy issues, a distinguished professor emerita at UAB’s School of Education, “provided eyeglasses, coats, and shoes to children in the area because she understood that kids can’t do the things they need to do in school when they’re cold on the way to school,” says her daughter, Marilee Ransom, Ph.D.
