Today is a very important day for a number of reasons.
It is St.George’s Day. Go to my activities for St. George’s Day https://vanessareillytelt.wordpress.com/2010/04/23/happy-st-georges-day-or-happy-diada-de-sant-jordi/
‘Feliç Diada de Sant Jordi’ to all my teachers in Catalunya!
It is also World Book Day.
One of my favourite authors for children is Peter H. Reynolds. If you don’t know him yet, here is ‘The Dot‘.
A lovely story of how a teacher inspires her pupil.
Go to: http://www.peterhreynolds.com/dot/ for some activities to go with the story on the authors webpage.
Finally, today is the UN English Language Day. It was chosen as English language Day as it marks the anniversary of William Shakespeare’s Death.
Check out these websites for everyday sayings and expressions we have Shakespeare to thank for:
