Share a Story-Shapea Future 2010: All the Posts

Just as we did for Share a Story 2009, we have created a complete, one-stop index of all of the posts. In fact, we now have a new page on the blog JUST for the indexed information.

For Share a Story-Shape a Future 2010 we selected the theme It Takes a Village to Raise a Reader because learning to read is an immersive process ... everyone in a child's life plays a role, either formally or informally.

One of our goals with this year's event is to share ideas about all of the ways we can create readers and, by extension, celebrate the efforts that each of us dedicate to the children in our lives.

Day 1: The Many Faces of Reading
Terry Doherty is hosting at Scrub-a-Dub-Tub (Reading Tub blog). We are sharing stories with and from people in our communities who dedicate themselves to promoting reading.

At Home

At School
In Our Communities
Day 2: Literacy My Way, Literacy Your Way
Susan Stephenson of The Book Chook and her guests are talking about everything from "low-tech" storytelling and singing to letting kids create stop-motion videos.
Sometimes we have to be a little creative when it comes to getting kids interested in activities related to reading. If you're looking for ways to sneak in some literacy ...
Day 3: Just the Facts: The Nonfiction Book Hook
At the Reading Zone, today's host Sara Mulhern has two posts. In addition to introducing Day 3 of Share a Story, she has a great piece about pairing nonfiction with fiction in the classroom, complete with reviews of a few science/nature books for use in middle school, she links you to great ideas by other nonfiction lovers.
Day 4: Something Old, Something New: Old Favorites and New Classics
Donalyn Miller (aka the Book Whisperer) and her group of rabid readers are going to help us embrace the differences and bring them together. They're talking all kinds of books, sometimes pairing books we loved with modern classics. Whether you're trying to get a pre-reader excited about books or trying to keep a pre-teen reading, they've got lots of ideas.
Day 5: Reading for the Next Generation
Today, Jen Robinson (Jen Robinson's Book Page) she and her guests will be offering some answers to some of the questions parents have about reading relationships and what happens when they don't "click."
