I have not blogged in awhile! We’ve been busy with days of school and work (and play!).
I have been doing some knitting but I have put aside my Hulda Holly again for just a little break while I get some instant gratification with knitting a baby cardigan!
I am also starting back into school to get my elementary ed certification so that’s going to take up a lot of time as well.
One reason I want to teach is because I feel so strongly about reading and literacy. I hope to become increasingly involved in promoting literacy and encouraging families to embrace reading with their children. I found this video this morning from RIF (Reading is Fundamental), and I wanted to share it. Here’s the link embedded in what I think is such an important statement:
“When you don’t have access to books, you only encounter them in a format that’s work…Owning your own books gives you access to something that is personal, positive and joyful.”
I agree. When people (young and old) learn to read, it opens up other worlds for them. Books are my go-to gift.
