Pre-Reading Tips

It’s a myth that a successful reading session with your child would look like them (or you) reading a book cover to cover together without any other discussion. There is actually much more to a successful reading session than you might realize. In this short video, find out what you can do before you even start reading together to build a strong reading practice.

I’ve got some really exciting, fun projects over at my YouTube channel. I’m working on two series that will be released over the course of the next few months:

LITTLE OWL LITERACY

Now that I’m a children’s book author, I have an excuse to talk about one of my favorite subjects: literacy. I used to be a teacher and literacy specialist, and there’s something about decoding text that really revs my engine. (#LiteracyGeek) Throughout this video series, I share many of the tips I learned in grad school and during my experience as a teacher. You’ll get to know “literacy lingo” and receive actionable steps to take to help your child build their literacy skills - something that can be a challenge in a world filled with distractions.

OWLING 101

A lot of people have asked me to share advice on how they can become owlers. In this video series, I outline all my tips for starting a successful owling hobby - from safety to sartorial requirements.

Be sure to check it out. Videos will be released about once a week (for the most part, the two series will alternate from week to week). If you like them, subscribe and forward to a friend.

Enjoy!
