Lesson from “The Five Owls” – 3-Step Process for Children Literacy

Credit for this should be given to Holly and Dan Dailey, who worked tirelessly in Minneapolis on this project between 1980 and 2005:

Step 1: Make time for reading with your children.

Step 2: Create an environment for reading.

a) Read aloud to kids everyday,

b) Discuss stories, events, and the world around them,

c) Encourage children to learn letters and words,

d) Take children to libraries and bookstores, and

e) Encourage reading and writing as free-time activities.

Step 3: Read good books and talk about them

St. Dan Louis’ Web-Blog from Estella Vista, West Texas (written by St. Danny in 2009) fyi: DLD passed away on 11-22-2016

My older brother had a thing about numerology, anniversaries (Kennedy assassination conspiracy theories, etc.), justice particularly for minors with a real rough childhood, and establishing a safe haven for those that could benefit from “getting away from it (rat races) all” where the southwest Texas desert air and mountains offer a respite that will last an improved lifetime.

 

If you have never red any of his writings, now is the time to also pray that Dan L. has no more time to spend in purgatory, which he believed was only a Catholic myth. Enjoy his style and messages often hidden within the paragraphs and diagrams:
