Mark Weakland Literacy YouTube Channel
My business video channel for teachers (bit.ly/MWLitYouTube) is stocked with one and two minute literacy videos that clearly demonstrate teaching techniques, multi-sensory learning routines, phonemic awareness activities, and more. At the site you'll also find a sound-letter song, a kindergarten engagement activity, and an idea for an inexpensive "take-home bag" that a district can use to help primary grade children more easily learn during remote teaching times. I hope to have Kid Writing lessons and other activities up for kids (as an aid to teachers this fall), so check in now and again to see what's new.

Published by Black Rabbit Books, the six-book series is part of the BOLT imprint, which offers a unique hi/lo informational books for struggling and reluctant readers. To be honest, I don’t follow sports closely, but researching the achievements of the featured athletes left me inspired. With skill, practice, and unrelenting determination, humans can achieve great things! blackrabbitbooks.com/bolt.php
