Inktober day 1: Swift
A portrait of one of my favorite inkers and master scribblers, Quentin Blake.
I’m going to try to follow the official inktober list this year with accompanying limericks because why not?
Happy Halloween! For a spectacular witches’ dinner party, Impatient Foodie’s Elettra Wiedemann looked to childhood stories like Roald Dahl’s book, The Twits, which inspired these chicken potpies. Here, an inside look at the incredible witches dinner.
When I was in grade three I remember my teacher reading to the class Charlie and The Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl. We sat in silence absorbing every word, it was fantastic!. The teacher read Roald’s next book Charlie and The Glass Elevator as well and it was also a big favourite. Years later I was lucky enough to be teaching my own grade 3 and 4′s when the Harry Potter series came out. Once again a class sat in silence absorbing very word as this time I read the novel to the grade.
For your reflection this week we would enjoy discovering your memories of being read to. Preferably this would come from your own classroom experiences, otherwise it can be a reflection on what a parent read to you, or if that doesn’t fit, you can share what you would like to read to a class when you have the chance.
All of the ECL310 team look forward to sharing in this,
be creative, make a video, a Wordle, a sound recording, a cloze activity, anything you like!
“I began to realise how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good!” #RoaldDahl
Suddenly feeling all the more inspired to tackle Tuesday’s rather hefty ‘to do’ list. Lukewarm is no good. High ten to that.
