If you have an aspiring writer in your homeschool, why not tune in to some tips from young-adult author Jason Reynolds, this year’s official National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature at the Library of Congress:
Reynolds invites students to think about using frames as a storytelling device, and about inventing a special recipe — not just for food, but for anything you want to create, real or imaginary — and using that recipe as an element in a story.
This is just one of the many Resources for Families that are available at the Library of Congress — why not explore them all for your homeschool! 📚
What treasures did you discover (online or off) in your library this past Leo Term? 😊
❡ Dukedoms large enough: Have you found all the local libraries in your area? There may be more than you realize! The WorldCat Library Finder will help you find all the library collections near you — public and private, large and small — and the WorldCat catalog itself will help you locate the closest copy of almost any book in the world. 😊
❡ Books in the running brooks: The sidebar on the River Houses website (riverhouses.org) has links to several important online library collections that we like to explore, as well as permanent links to WorldCat and the WorldCat Library Finder. Why not sit yourself down at a large screen for a while (rather than a phone) and give them a browse. 😊
❡ When in doubt, go to the library: This is one of our regular Homeschool Books & Libraries posts. Add your name to our weekly mailing list (riverhouses.org/newsletter) and get great homeschool teaching ideas delivered right to your mailbox all through the year. 📚
