This year World Book Day was celebrated on Thursday 3rd March 2016.
To celebrate World Book Day in our classroom, children got to read the first chapter from a variety of different books. The pupils had to reflect back on what they read then by completing a worksheet answering:
The reason they liked/disliked the chapter
Why the author made them want to read on
Predict what would happen next
Draw the main picture they had in their head after reading the chapter
Looking up difficult/interesting words in their dictionaries.
If you liked reading any of these books and want to continue reading to see what happens next, check out your local library or purchase in a local book shop using your World Book Day token which gives you €1.50 off the price of a book.
Remember: Book tokens are only valid until March 27th, 2016.
