Do we teach children to love reading?                                                     From: David Didau, The Learning Spy

Do we teach children to love reading?                                                     From: David Didau, The Learning Spy | Elementary Ed Toolbox | Scoop.it

      "Few of the people interested in the teaching of reading actually value passing on a love of reading". My initial reaction was to reject this. I asked a question afterwards to challenge this view and his response was to ask, "why do so few young people, especially boys, value reading if we actually value passing on a love of reading? Surely what we really valued ought to be what children learn?" 

      There are several possible reasons why, despite our best intentions, so many young people don’t read for pleasure. One is that if reading is too much like hard work it’s unlikely to be fun. This is something which can probably be solved through better instruction.

Nature

Nature | Elementary Ed Toolbox | Scoop.it
More than eight in 10 Americans live in cities, separated from the natural world by walls of concrete and steel. So it's not surprising that we think of nature only when it comes time to planning a vacation. Nature may be a nice place to visit, but we don't live there. Or do we? No matter where we live, the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat, and the energy that powers our cars, lights, and other electronic devices all derive from nature. Even when we pave it over, nature still surrounds us, making possible our very existence.
