World Book Day Competition!
Tuesday 1 March 2016
To celebrate World Book Day we are offering you the opportunity to be one of 3 winners of copies of the groundbreaking Teaching children how to learn by Gail Ellis & Nayr Ibrahim and Storytelling With Our Students by David Heathfield. To enter this competition simply like our World Book Day Facebook post here!
In March and April we are also offering two free story and book related resources in our Delta Downloads area:
Wilbur’s storybook recommendations is ideal for teachers who want to introduce children to the magical world of storybooks, with a friendly bookworm called Wilbur recommending more than 50 storybooks, giving you a synopsis and introduction to each one. Wilbur’s storybook recommendations, taken from Teaching children how to learn, also includes a storybook record template, which the authors recommend completing as you use these and other storybooks in your classroom.
Imagining and improvising is an activity which accompanies Aldar Kose Tricks the Bai, the best-known Kazak folk tale about the popular legendary hero, Aldar Kose. The activity is a creative means of getting students into the story, encouraging them to do improvised drama roleplay based on information you give them about characters and events. This activity is taken from Storytelling With Our Students, which encourages the use of storytelling in the classroom to build confidence, develop language skills and encourage speaking and listening fluency.
