Kia ora tātou,
Welcome to week seven. We are rapidly racing towards the shortest day of the year, and I am counting down to the Dunedin Lantern Festival.
Making the lanterns in class and writing about the experience brings back very fond memories. Are there any other festivals on that you would like to share a link to?
This week I am focussing on the fabulous news that from now on the school journals will be available in digital form as well as print!
“Since 1907, the School Journal has delivered New Zealand content to motivate, excite, and engage students across the curriculum. Now, for the first time, the School Journals are available in digital form as well as print, giving you more ways to use these resources with your students.”
“In direct response to your feedback, from now on, both the Junior Journal and School Journal – as well as titles in the School Journal Story Library – will not only be distributed to your school in print, but will also be available on Te Kete Ipurangi (TKI) as downloadable PDFs.”
What does this mean for our literacy programme?
How can we use this to transform our teaching practice and our learning opportunities?
We welcome all your ideas, as we explore how to make the best use of this new resource together. Remember ideas that seem ordinary and obvious to you are often amazing to others. Obvious to you. Amazing to others. - by Derek Sivers
