Were Back We Have Loads Of Free Resources For You

Welcome to the first newsletter of Term 3. What a great holiday it has been. This newsletter is packed with new resources, activities, articles and our first book giveaway from New Holland Press.

As always you will find 2 Free sets of book activities and I am super excited to share our new interactive worksheets for these. We will be adding this for all new sets of activities and are working back through to add these to some of our more popular resources. Drop me a line to let me know which books you would like to see these for so we can do these first.

Learn From Play now has a dedicated CBCA page with activities for all the CBCA books we have made plus dedicated CBCA 2020 activities to help make this the best Book Week ever.

In this jam packed newsletter you will also find a new motivational poster to brighten your classroom and my latest blog article on Gamifying Spelling to get your students loving school even more.

I am also excited to have 3 copies of Felicity McVay's new book - 'The Boy Who Burped' to give away. To enter the draw to win simply click on the book cover below. We will release resources for this book and the names of the winners next week so there is not much time to enter.


First off my latest blog on Gamifying Spelling. This is part 3 in the 5 part series and is all about Having a Ball while Spelling! Click the image below to read the full article.

The 2 Free book activities this week are Mr Chicken All Over Australia by Leigh Hobbs which is a Notable Picture Book and Born To Fly by Beverley McWilliams and Timothy Ide a notable contender for the CBCA 2020 Eve Pownall non-fiction award. For Mr Chicken All Over Australia there are 7 worksheets and 6 of these students can complete on-line with instant marking when submitted. For Born To Fly there are 4 activities and 2 of these are available online.

Now for the part you were waiting for - the book giveaway. Learn From Play has teamed up with New Holland Press to create resources for some of their latest books. One of these is The Boy Who Burped. This is the story of a Sydney boy who realises that his joy in burping needs to come to an end but he is not quite sure how to fix it.

To win yourself one of 3 free copies of this valued at $17.99 click on the book below which will take you to our Facebook page. Share the page with 3 colleagues before midnight Thursday July 30 and you are entered. We will announce the 3 winners when we release the activities for this book next week. Good Luck!
