SAM_7297Last Monday I had the great pleasure of meeting more parents at Christian Alliance International School when we explored How to Create Great Writers in the Digital Age! We talked about the vital importance of reading books in creating good writers; about clearing kids’ schedules so they have precious time to play, to create, to dream, to read books and to write; about the fabulous benefits of reading aloud to children; keeping diaries and writers’ notebooks; using the internet with cunning; and the importance of Turning Off the Technology on a regular basis! Many thanks to my lovely host Tracy Gliddon for her warm welcome!
