Katie Beitz (KatieBeitz) | 30 comments Just wondering if anyone is doing anything exciting for Book Week. The theme this year is connections and I know we will have a few exciting things going on in our school. We will be having a dress up day, a door decorating competition and this year for the first time will be doing a whole school book exchange.

This years short listed books look interesting (although I must confess I haven't read any of them yet). Just thought it would be interesting to see if there are any other teachers out there who are doing any interesting things this year.

I had an old jig saw puzzle, so I glued over 500 pieces onto a large piece of cardboard. Students will need to guess how many of these 'connecting pieces' there are. We have a drawing competition (A5 size paper). We have drawn a part of a head on one side and a tail on the other. Students will need to create a creature by 'connecting' the two. Always have books and stationery as prizes.

I bought some of the short listed books to read to my preschoolers. However I missed I'm a Dirty Dinosaur and based on the cover alone I must get it!

As well as making a giant spray can we are going to graffiti some paper and stick it up on the walls with quotes.

My daughters school had a favourite book character parade - she went as Nanny McPhee. There were some good costumes and the kids had fun!
