READiscover Books - Book Week 2007
Our children were also complimented on their courteousness and their good manners and me for my organisation and enthusiasm. Now I finally have some money to spend on updating my non-fiction resources, an area of great need when children are attempting tasks and some of the websites are too onerously literate for them to understand and use in their work.
Our second event was our guest illustrator, Stephen Axelson, a totally unassuming artist and writer who talked his way through his illustrative techniques demonstrating to the children what could be achieved with different lines etc. He used his graphic tablet and pen and pastel chalks to show different types of images that can be created using the computer and paper and left us with three wonderful prints to frame and place in our school. Amazingly they join our Kim Gamble ones and he was a classmate of his in Sydney.
We certainly had the opportunity to READiscover Books in many ways at Holy Cross this Book Week!
