Pink Day – Breast Cancer Awareness

It’s been pink day at school’s recently (October) and I’m trying to do my part to encourage awareness, since early detection prevents fatalities from Breast Cancer at well over 95%. http://www.nzherald.co.nz/lifestyle/news/article.cfm?c_id=6&objectid=11371312 It’s not strictly on topic, but I wanted to post this for remembrance and awareness, that, like so many diseases in the past, Breast Cancer […]

A Family Writing Project

I’ve just up-loaded the following book: http://freekidsbooks.org/book/show/id/147 It’s a “BETA version” that means I’m planning a bit more editing for a version 1, but for nowI’ve had lots of fun writing, and reading, and re-reading it with my 6 year old, and I loved reading it, so in sharing it,  I hope you can enjoy […]

Dr Seuss: Mr Brown Can Moo! Can You?

This has become one of my favourite Dr Seuss books, since it’s helped me a great deal with speech therapy. On the surface it might seem a silly book with fun sounds, but look further, I believe it has many hidden qualities. For children learning to read, the phonetic sounds, large words, and repetition are […]
