We are back in our “new” old home at 2301 1st Avenue North! The boxes are unpacked—mostly—and our offices are settled—mostly—and things are getting back to normal. Just as I was thinking of a good post to get me back on track with this blog, ProLiteracy shared some new things going on in the adult literacy world. Among those is a link to a wonderful site at the San Jose Public Library. Their Partners in Reading program has produced a series of short videos—some no more than 2+ minutes, the longest just over 12 minutes long—that cover a whole range of ideas for reading tutors. They are great “reboot” videos for those of us who feel we need to brush up a bit.

When you watch the one on phonemic awareness—phoneme categorization, see what they do with two Styrofoam cups! Very clever!!
Happy New Year…and Happy Hump Day!
