Literacyhead


I'd like to thank Jamie over at Literacyhead for including one of my illustrations in their current issue. Literacyhead is a new, online magazine geared toward literacy educators. Their goal is to provide educators with weekly instruction ideas that explore the connections between textual and visual literacy. A big part of what they do involves the use of artwork to help teach different reading and writing concepts. Jamie chose "Let Me Tell You A Story" (pictured above) to include in "Write Starts", an article used to spark ideas for discussions, writing, and thinking! There is also a non-profit extension of Literacyhead that focuses on providing children with extraordinary opportunities for immersion in the arts. Ten percent of all profits from Literacyhead go towards supporting the non-profit branch. If you are a teacher or know someone who is, please take some time to check out/recommend this wonderful site.
