Welcome to the new Kid Lit Kit, your toolkit for teaching with books! Every day we hope to provide you with exciting book news and ideas for using books in the classroom.
Thursday July 31 was a great day for Harry Potter fans. Not
only was it Harry’s birthday, it was also J.K. Rowling’s birthday, and she made
an exciting announcement about her new book, The
Tales of Beedle the Bard. You can buy your copy in December 2008 but you might want to pre-order it now!
We also got a first look at the Half Blood Prince movie
What do you think? Does that young Tom Riddle look pure evil or what?
And if you're looking for Harry Potter lesson ideas, check out the lesson plans and activities in this J. K. Rowling Author Study.
Be sure to come back next week for Nonfiction Monday, New Review Tuesday, Video Wednesday, Picture Book Thursday, and the Friday Blog Round-Up. We look forward to providing you with a full week's worth of ideas for sharing books with your students!
