Show and Tell #47

Welcome! New to ABC and 123? Please check out our FAQ in the sidebar.

Welcome to March! We are looking forward to a month full of language, literacy, and READING! Throughout the month of March we will be featuring book lists, reading lessons, projects related to reading, new authors, familiar authors, and much more! In honor of ABC & 123's 2nd Birthday we are also going to be looking for birthday books and birthday party themes inspired by children's books. We are looking forward to reading along with you & hearing all about your favorite adventures with books.

Our weekly features, Show & Tell and Feature Yourself Friday, will proceed as normal. You will also hear from Ticia and Erica on their scheduled dates throughout the month of March!

In addition to following along here at ABC & 123 throughout reading month, we would also encourage you to participate in the Read Along at Helping Little Hands.

If you are also hosting a blog carnival that focuses on reading and/or books send us an email and we will highlight your special event as well!

Let's kick off March with three literacy related links from last week's Show & Tell!

The Work Plan linked to a post called "Let's Read" explaining strategies for working with early readers.

The creative mom at Playing House put together a wonderful quiet book featuring the letters of the ABCs.

Mom Endeavors prepared her kids for a time when they would be apart by putting together a While We're Away book.

Now, it's your turn!
