Looking Back to October - December 2017



A regular feature on The Book Chook is where I look at popular articles from previous months and years. Today my focus will be on posts from, you guessed it, October, November and December of 2017. Don't forget you can use the right sidebar to find more useful resources. Click Creating, Learning, Reviews, Reading, Writing and Celebrating to explore those themes, or try the Blog Archive to browse by months. The Free PDFs button takes you to my other website where you can download any of the free educational PDFs I’ve created.


I hope you find something useful here, and if you do, thanks for sharing it with others who can benefit too.

* My Creative Prompt series has many followers and I couldn’t be happier about that. Here’s one from 2017, Creative Prompt for Kids - Start with a Line.

* Would you like some simple templates you can print off and use to guide children in responding to literature? Respond to Literature - 3 Book Response Templates.

* If children are having trouble finding what they want to read, these two posters on book selection might help. As usual, all my PDFs are free to educators, parents and librarians who want to use them with kids.

* 2017 is only a year ago. These books are bound to still be in stores and libraries, or might even be available from the publisher. Here’s one list of picture books from 2017, an earlier list that same year, and a heap of picture books that celebrate diversity. Here are Fun Children’s Book Gifts for Christmas.

* Here are nine prompts that are specifically to help kids start writing.

* Have you tried Assembly app yet? I am a real fan!

* Using video clips as a prompt for some kind of activity can be useful. Check out my list of kid-friendly video prompts.

* All prompted out? This one is the last, I promise: Creative Prompt for Kids - Start with a Santa.
