Hi everyone,

     I hope you all had a good first week back and that it was probably very busy!
Last week we discussed
continued our discussion of electronic resources
Juliet Fry posted the PLD newsletter - English Language Learners (ELLs) and Home School Partnerships
and Catriona alerted us the the upcoming Ready to Read webinars
On other communities
Primary ESOL Online shared a list of books that capture the experiences of ELLs.
This community also shared a guest post from Jannie Van Hees on oral language as part of their ongoing discussion on oral language.
Secondary Literacy Online shared details of the next Light the Fire meeting.
English Online have had a discussion on helping students break down the external exam questions that is well worth following if you have students doing the externals.
English Online also shared a presentation for Trish Holden and Cynthia Orr on Audience and Purpose.
On the VLN 

Learning with Digital Technologies for Māori and Pasifika Learners has great post on using Tellagami. Tellagami is a mobile app (ios and Android) that lets you create and share a quick animation. I can see students having a lot of fun with this and lots of applications in our classrooms.

Have a great week everyone.
