I am a writer who teaches and a teacher who writes. I have been a Literacy Coordinator for 10 years and have set up literacy cluster groups within my county. I love teaching literacy using picture books and aim to share the units of work I have taught with as many quality resources as possible. I include links to buy the original books on the front page of my planning documents and recommend purchasing or borrowing the 'Big Books' for your little readers.
