I thought that about twice a month I would offer a round-up of resources that I have come across via twitter or blogs as I usually end up with too many to blog about individually.
My favourite resource so far is this wonderful blog post of 50 digital fairy tale images. They are fantastic and I will be using them in all sorts of ways in my work. Thanks to @englishteach8 for the retweet via @LatestWeb about them.
I came across Perform a Poem on twowhizzy’s delicious bookmarks. What a wonderful idea and resource for poetry teaching. As we are taking part in a poetry and animation project we will definitely be uploading some or our work to this site.
I heard about The Invention of Hugo Cabret: A Novel in Words and Pictures from @Joga5 on his blog Ponderings and Musings. This rags to riches story is told through text, hand drawn images and photos from film and is very clever. I have ordered my own copy and hope to introduce it to some teachers fairly soon. You would need a visualiser to share this text with children.
I also came across this drama website from @Joga5. it is a wonderful place to get ideas for drama plus drama activities that you can use every day.
