Book Week Winners, Best Dressed Award, A New Poster and More!

Congratulations to this year's Book Week award winners. Both the book authors and publishers and those students who managed to win a prize for their Book Parade costume. In this week's newsletter we have a blog on the joy of dressing up for Book Week, a new poster for Premium Members and a new set of book activities for the Caldecott Honour Book Going Down Home With Daddy.

CBCA Book Week - This week was a special event for many schools, pre-schools and libraries. If you have not completed activities for the winners and short listed books please click the banner above to see what we have on offer. There are short listed and winning book activities with games, puzzles, art and craft and more.

Latest Blog - Our blog this week is all about the joy of dressing up as your favourite character for Book Week. You can read the full article by clicking either the blog below or my favourite Book Week Parade costume ever - although I may be a little biased. Please share with me some of your favourite and most creative student costumes or ways in which you celebrated this year which may have been a little bit different thanks to covid.

New Resources - This week we released new resources for Going Down Home With Daddy by Kelly Starling
Lyons and Daniel Minter. This Caldecott Honour Book is an African-American story of celebration and family. Lil
Alan visits his great-grandma Granny for a reunion and a day of Thanksgiving. Activities for this book include
giving thanks, crayon drawing, singing, scrapbooking and reading poetry. These are perfect for older primary
school students from Grades 3 to 6. Click on either image to see the resources.

New Premium Poster - This week's poster teaches us to enjoy special moments as they happen and
recognise them for what they are - like my nephew being Frugal Fred. Click the image to download the poster

As always if you have any questions, feedback or content suggestions for areas of the curriculum that you would
like to see gamified send me an email. In the mean time, please help us grow our Learn From Play teaching community by sharing the site with your colleagues so everyone can benefit.
