Digital Storytelling Using Podcasts

We had a great day yesterday at Enrich where we learned about creating podcasts and using them as digital storytelling
tools. We will be creating many of these and sharing them with you. The children are going to run workshops for other
children to learn these skills.
This is another fantastic way to encourage reading, writing and oral language.

Keep the discussion going!

Hi everyone. We're really enjoying the discussion of your favourite children's books.
Keep adding your thoughts to the post below as comments. Wouldn't it be fantastic if
we could get comments from everyone in the school community - and further afield??!!

What Was Your Favourite Book When You Were A Child?

What was the best book you loved to read when you were younger?
This is our first discussion starter - not just for the children, but for
everyone at Myross Bush - and further afield if you are reading
this from somewhere else!
I loved all the Enid Blyton books but I also had a soft spot for the classics
like Wuthering Heights, Jane Eyre, etc, and then there was always
Dr Seuss!!
What about those series you loved to collect - the Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys and
Trixie Belden books....
Please add your discussion as a comment and we'll see where our love of Literature
takes us.

Hi everyone!
Welcome to the new blog for all those people who love reading and discussing their books. This is the place to come to learn more about Literature Circles, find lots of great books to read, hear from others about books they'd love to share with you, debate issues in books and just generally value the place of books / literature in our lives.
We will have reviews of books on this site, podcasts and vodcasts of favourite stories. We will provide links to authors you can contact about their books and much, much more!
Please add your ideas about what you'd like to see on this blog.
