Activities using shortlisted books for Book Week 2013

Posted by Lisa Hill on July 25, 2013


I’ve made a couple of simple worksheets linked to the CBCA Book of the Year shortlist, to support VELS Thinking Processes.  Except for the map activity for It’s a Miroocool, they’re suitable for all primary classes (depending on how much time you have):

  • Preps: ‘write and draw’
  • Juniors: Label and draw
  • Middles: Write sentences and draw
  • Write paragraphs

It’s a Miroocool (map)

I have also made one for The Terrible Suitcase but WordPress is being difficult today and won’t load it.  You can request a copy of it using the comment form below, and I’ll email it to you by using the email address that you have to include to make the comment.
