10 iPad Lessons for World Book Day!
However here are 10 ideas for celebrating World Book day using iPads. Well not all are strictly iPad based, but more incorporating some aspect of technology into your World Book Day theme.
1. Extreme Reading - This was something we did as a whole school last year. The idea is that you ask parents to take pictures of children reading in the most weird and peculiar place. We had over 200 entries and children really enjoyed creating and sharing their efforts. It really promoted how we value reading as a school and the two massive displays within the school reflect this.
@lroyparky really good read, Callum. All the details are there...and I especially liked the description of supersub Ryan's goal. Well doneAs well as using twitter to contact authors, you can use the constraint of twitter for children to create book reviews. Can children review a book as a tweet? a rebus using emoji? or even a vine? I have recently blogged about using contraints in writing and the exciting challenges they present children. To read some of these ideas - CLICK HERE. Further to this you could create a writing challenge dice to set rules for a book review. Using the app Foldify, you can create the net of a cube and write different challenges to include in their book reviews.

4. QR Codes - Creating QR codes of blog book reviews can also be an interesting way to share children's work. Copy the blog address of the book review and visit qrstuff.com to create your QR code. This can be stuck in children's books, displayed on noticeboards or at Parents Evening for Parents to read. If your school has a library, children can stick QR codes of book reviews into books in the library, so others can scan and read the reviews before choosing that book.
5. Explain Everything - Use this app for children to create a video of themselves reading one of or an exert from their favourite book. I can't take credit for this video but here is how:
