World Book Day

It's World Book Day! I'm running around like crazy trying to get ready for my final University Job Fair of the year (U.Vic) so here are a few great blog posts and resources that I thought you'd enjoy.

  • On World Book Day: We ask how to help a reluctant reader, by Sarah Ebner. As always, Sarah's writing is so clear, informative & helpful to teachers & parents alike.
  • Free Technology for Teachers - Winner of the 2008 Edublog awards for Best Resource Sharing Blog. This blog is jam-packed with technology resources for teachers, and hey, we all know kids love technology so why not use technology to help them love reading?
  • Teachers TV - This particular video is of a grade 6 teacher and her literacy lesson on narrative structure. I can't praise this website enough. It is the #1 resource to help you prepare for teaching in London, England. Hands-down.
If you have any others you'd like to share, please leave them in the comments below. I'm sure others will want to know about your resources for World Book Day.


  1. is a new favourite of mine. It has some cool, fun stuff that can be used to liven things up a bit and keep those crazy kids from crazy chaos.

  2. "Keep those crazy kids from crazy chaos" is a brilliant blog post title. Can I steal that? ;-)

    Thanks for sharing the resource with us. I'll check it out & write a piece about it soon.


Thanks for sharing your two pence!
