International Literacy Day 2011 – Celebrating Peace

The 8th September is UNESCO’s International Literacy Day. This year’s focus is on the link between literacy and peace, an important priority for IBBY too.

  1. We celebrated overnight with a Teddy bear’s sleepover at the library.
    Today we shared a Teddy storytime and then took 85 teddies and assorted soft toys back to our local primary school. This morning I made a powerpoint of the several activites the teddies undertook at the library including a picnic, music time, dress ups and bedtime stories.
    With all the kindergarten classes (4) assembled in the school library we viewed the photos – talked about having fun in the library and read “Two bad teddies” by Kilmeny Niland. The teddies make peace with new toy Bendy Bill.
