Promote reading and home-based literacy simply by hanging up these fun cartoons in your class! Post them on doors, the whiteboard, or on walls at eye level. The bright colors and real life situations grab the attention of students grades 1st and up.
The messages also speak to PARENTS who come to pick up their children from pre-school and kindergarten settings. The download consists of four mini-literacy "posters" to be printed in color on standard letter sized paper. Also available in Spanish as a separate download.The cartoons were written by Matthew Gollub, a respected literacy advocate and award-winning children's author (The Jazz Fly, Jazz Fly 2: The Jungle Pachanga books with audio, etc.) and illustrated by Larry Nolte.
Here are the names and main message of the four printouts:
Books with Audio page: Listen to recorded books in the car!
Reading Muscles page: Celebrate your reading efforts!
Shark Warning page: Not reading is a dangerous thing!
Vampire Moms page: Share what you are reading with your family!
These proven images originally were published in the author's award-winning book, Give the Gift! 10 Fulfilling Ways to Raise a Lifetime Reader. Now modified, and available in English and Spanish, they are available to dress up your classroom or reading center.
