Like many of you, I follow numerous literacy educators blogs and follow many more on Twitter. There are so many insightful literacy teachers, professors, and coaches that it’s hard to name just a few. Listed below are some of my favorite literacy blogs in no particularly intentional order. Although many of these blogs can fit in multiple categories, I attempted to loosely categorize them. Many of the short descriptions also come directly from their blog. Check them out and spread the literacy love.
Two knowledgeable and energetic literacy experts and authors. They blog regularly on diverse topics about reading and writing. In addition, they frequently share their love and passion for children’s literature. Always insightful.
10. Nerdy Book Club
According to the site’s primary contributors – Donalynn Miller, Colby Sharp, and Cindy Minnich – if you love books, especially those written for children and young adults, then you are an honorary member of The Nerdy Book Club. Like them, you probably always have a book along to read, a title to recommend, and time to talk about works held dear. On their blog, they share their love of reading and award annual Nerdies Book Club Awards.
In this blog, Jen promotes the love of books by children and the continued reading of children’s books by adults. A must-follow site if you want to (try) to keep up on the latest in children’s and adolescent literature.
Like children’s literature? Check out two teachers (Franki Sibberson and Mary Lee Hahn) who read (and review). A lot.
Jennifer LaGarde (aka Library Girl) is a school librarian who seeks to promote school libraries to support 21st century student learning. She uses her blog to ponder, share and rub her thoughts about libraries and student learning together until they catch fire or fizzle out.
There you go. I’m sure you know others that I haven’t mentioned here. If so, feel free to add them in the comments below. Spare a little extra time for reading today and check these out. You’ll be glad you did.
