Ms. Yingling Reads e-Books from Bill Zimmerman Words I Wish Someone Had Saidto Me As a Kid I wrote this book of encouraging words to help young people as they make their way in the world. Every girl and boy needs to hear such words. I know I did. You see, I lost my father when I was very young and missed hearing the words that a child needs to hear from his or her dad. Growing up, I tried hard to imagine the things he would have said to guide me if he were around. Writing the letter helped me that day and I continued to write more letters in the voice of a father talking to a child. If you’re a young person reading this book, think of each page as a personal letter of caring words from me to you, like the ones an older friend or relative might say to you.

The Poem Farm: Line Breaks and White Space in Poems White Space Photo by Amy LV After a year of daily poems and strategy ideas. I will be revisiting one strategy/technique for each day of April. Today's thought is: pay attention to line breaks and white space when you read and write poems! Line Breaks and White Space in Poems Students - one of the most obvious things we can notice about poems is that they look different from prose (or non-poems). White space is the area around the poem. Line breaks and white space help readers know how to read a poem out loud and inside their heads. Did you ever notice how groups of people can sound like robots when they say the same thing at the same time? Do not read like a robot as you read line breaks in your own or others' poems. Do pay close attention to line breaks and white space. Read like a human being with emotions and a thinking mind. (Did you see how I put that one sentence on a line all by itself?)

The Electric Company Over thirty years ago, an educational television show dared to speak to youth in the voice of their generation. The Electric Company turned on the power of possibility for kids by showing them that learning to read can be fun. In 2009, the power surged back with the all-new The Electric Company. The show aims to entertain children between 6 and 9 while simultaneously teaching the following four crucial areas of literacy that are challenging for struggling readers: 1. 2. 3. 4.
