In honor of Reading Month, we’d like to share some of our favorite literacy-related blogs. These blogs are the source of a tremendous amount of inspiration for those of us charged with teaching reading and writing. I’ve got a whole folder in my Google Reader just for literacy blogs. And it’s pretty much guaranteed that when I sit down to check it each morning, I’ll find several great posts. (Be sure to follow us on twitter and Pinterest because we love sharing them!)

So without further adieu, a list of some of our favorite literacy blogs:

The Miss Rumphius Effect

From the Mixed Up Files of Middle Grade Authors

Jen Robinson’s Book Page

100 Scope Notes

Two Writing Teachers

A Year of Reading

Raising Readers and Writers

A Teaching Life

Teaching Authors

Gotta Book

Library Girl

Never Ending Search

The Daring Librarian

I’m telling you, there is good stuff contained within these here blogs. Which ones am I missing? Please let me know so I can add them to my list! You may notice that only a couple of the above are blogs of authors. That would be a good idea for another post, though. Feel free to share any of your favorite author blogs, too!

Also, if you’re a regular tweeter, you should definitely follow the #tlchat hashtag. Teacher librarians all over the world use it to share resources and ideas.

Finally, if you’re a Google Reader addict user like myself, I created a bundle of literacy blogs that include all of the aforementioned sites. That way you can subscribe to all of them with one click! (And if you’re not a Google Reader user, contact us to set up a webinar…cause it’s awesome!) Click HERE for the bundle.

Happy Reading Month!
