Second Chance Reads: January 2021

Today is the last day of the first month of 2021. 

The year is still new, maybe not as bright and shiny given the chaotic events already experienced, but new enough you shouldn't get discouraged.

Today's a chance to read  some blogs you may have missed because January is usually such a busy month.

Great information is on the internet, but it comes in a flood, not a trickle. It's easy to miss content that may  inform, instruct, and entertain you.


Here's a list of great blog posts from across the blog world that you may have missed in January. I've tried to categorize them for your convenience. Hope you find something you need.

This first link doesn't go to a blog post, but to the Learning Press website. I'm giving it because in the last year when kids are staying home for distance learning, I've heard far too many of them in the neighborhood say they don't like to read. 

Some even say they hate it. Moms who are suddenly teaching monitors in the home classroom say their kids struggle with reading. I found All About Reading section on the Learning Press website and thought I'd pass the link along.

I know in this age of XBox and Playstation that kids would rather take the exciting, full color action adventures in a video game, but a kid who has poor reading skills just won't be successful in the real world.
