Escape To Everywhere - Book Week 2017

Hello my Teaching Friends,

If you are like me and just started planning for Book Week - well I have your back! I have been home sick this week and in true teacher spirit, I couldn't just sit around doing nothing - hello resource making in bed!! 

This years theme for CBCA Book Week is 'Escape To Everywhere' which is such beautiful theme. There is noting better than being sucked into a different time, world or even dimension when reading a good book. Books can provide us with an alternative perspective, giving teachers a powerful tool for spreading kindness in their classrooms and therefore school environment. 

At my school this year, we are fortunate to have Serena Geddes and Shaun Tan visit our school. I think I am more excited than the kids!

To compliment the other Book Week events we have throughout the week I have made some resources that I can use in the classroom to make sure my kids are having the full Book Week experience! Hopefully you can find something in the following printables that you can use in your classroom!

Happy Reading,


  1. I don't like to be a party pooper but the word favourite is misspelt on second page I think. The page with Buddy Talk on it. Thanks.

  4. Perfect example of speculation, empathy and expression. Here I learned a new way to speculate through author’s writing. It allowed me to feel a new way to speculate your thoughts and express them in an easy and clear way.เรียน sat ที่ไหนดี
