The Colour of Memory

How Use of Colour Can Help Your Child’s Revision

Do read this timely blog from WHSmith about the useful application of colour-coding to pupils’ revision techniques. Keep an ear open for the fact that ultimately they’re trying to sell stationery though! 😉

When it comes to revision, children use techniques and methods they feel work best for them, whether it’s creating rhymes to remember equations, sticking notes on their bedroom walls, or getting their parents to quiz them after they’ve learned a topic or two. And when it comes to actually creating revision notes, all kids love reaching for their highlighters, gel pens and post-it notes to add a splash of colour to their work.

Here at Clishmaclaver I don’t often get the chance to post on non-literacy based subjects like science or maths, etc., so when I saw this on FB I was pretty excited. So, c/o Open Culture – “the best free cultural and educational media on the web” –

A Strategy for Reading..?

This recent article from The Herald (Free registration required to read it!) sings the praises of school librarians in the face of falling literacy standards, as reported in the recently published Scottish Survey of Literacy. So, of course, I had to share! 😉

A year of #bookface…

Image may contain: 1 person

Fun times at the National Library of Scotland; who said librarians were boring?
Here’s a selection of #bookfaces from over the past year (April 2016 onwards). We hope you enjoy looking at them as much as we enjoyed making them. Tell us your favourites and give us your suggestions for new #bookfaces 😃.”

Read science fiction more than periodically!

Sci-Fi for People Who Don’t Like Sci-Fi

There’s so much more to sci-fi novels than the usual aliens, spaceships, and evil villains who wants to destroy the intergalactic world. These stories can be filled with mysteries, action, suspense, and of course, passionate romances *wink wink*. Here are some great sci-fi books that’ll make you forget you’re not a sci-fi fan!” – Penguin Teen
