A review of a few posts.
As some of you may know I was at the Children’s Laureates Meet in Dublin. I met the lovely Julia Donaldson and our own Siobhán Parkinson.
I met Chris Bincy in Dublin as part of his writer in residence. He gave me loads of advice, so I’m pretty busy teaching and editing to blog as much as I use to.
My post on the Children’s Laureate was mention on THE ~ Children Books Ireland website!
In teaching news – I have been getting more days subbing, and I need ice-breakers. I introduce myself and share about my favourite book to the children. I love Alan Early’s book, it is an adventure and is fun. Honestly, the children just love that I was at his book launch, that I met him and wrote about the launch on writing.ie. His book was nominated for an Irish Book Award and ‘has been chosen as the key book in a new project to promote reading among primary school children.’ – Irish Times.
I wrote a post (well a copy and paste job) on New Uses For Old Things.
I a teaching two ICT courses for teachers in the Kilkenny Education Centre the links are here Twitter for Education and
Scratch Computer Programming .

You're always busy – the best way. Read a cool post earlier – here's the link and sorry for being out of touch. I had the head down, only now coming up for air:)
First time to ever comment on a blog……hi!!
I heard about Alan's book here and will be recommending it for my class.
Thanks for the comment! As iama teacher, I always ask the children what's hot and what's not….I was lucky I came across Alsn Earlys book myself cause the kids think I'm cool now!!
I got his book and your right my son loves it, thanks for the advice!
