It’s almost here! Book Week 2019 is almost upon us.
This year, Book Week runs from August 17th – August 23rd – that’s only a few short weeks away!
And here in the Teach Starter office, we’re pretty excited!
The theme for Book Week 2019 is Reading is my Secret Power. Now, we may not have had our own students for a little while – but that doesn’t mean we don’t like a good school celebration as much as the next classroom teacher!
And if it’s reading-related? Well, that’s even better!
We believe reading really is a secret power. When students develop decoding, comprehension and inferring skills, the whole world is opened up to them. The sky is the limit when a love of reading is developed early in childhood.
Book Week 2019 – Reading is My Secret Power
Because we love Book Week so much, we have created some amazing new Book Week related resources for the classroom. These fantastic downloads will help you and your students embrace the theme ‘Reading is My Secret Power’ and take your love for reading to new heights! Make sure you check out Holly’s blog on the ultimate Book Week resources.
But in the meantime, we’d love to share with you one of the most exciting resources yet! Please allow me to introduce to you the ‘I’m a Reading Superhero’ Wall Display!
This amazing resource will bring your reading corner or library alive with excitement! Your students will be lining up to show their secret power of reading.
How to Assemble the ‘I’m a Reading Superhero’ Wall Display
While there is a little bit of cutting and assembling involved, the time invested in making this display will be worth it!
- Cut out each piece of the ‘I’m a Reading Superhero’ Wall Display cape. You may need to write the side names on the back of each piece in pencil if you are cutting it all out at once.
- In alphabetical order, attach each piece of the cape to its corresponding piece. E.g, The tab named A attaches to the side named A.
- Hang the cape on your wall at student height, angled so that it looks as though it is waving in the breeze.
- Place your display elements, speech bubble and title in an appropriate space around the cape!
Uses for the ‘I’m a Reading Superhero’ Wall Display
Your students will love dressing up for Book Week, but they can get into character with this wall display as well!
Ask your students to pose in front of the wall display with their favourite books – take a photo and send it home, or add your images to the wall display!
This reading display doesn’t just have to be for book week!
Why not display it in your library all year round? Remind students that reading is a gift and they should be proud of their reading achievements!
P.s…Even teachers can get involved!
