The ABCs of Me; meet the bloggers behind the blogs. I am so pleased to introduce to you dear readers Malia from Playdough to Plato. Playdough to Plato is all about motivating children to read. As a teacher, I know and see first hand the importance of being a confident reader who enjoys reading, especially in one’s early years (Kindergarten to Year 2). We all need to learn to read because we read to learn.  The resources available on Playdough to Plato clearly shows that Malia is a very talented educator; she has exceptional teaching skills and a genuine heart to help people.
