Today marks National Day on Writing. To celebrate the evolution and art of writing, the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) began this annual tribute in 2009. This movement is supported by the need for building literacy through writing. Today, we want to inspire you and your children to pick up a pencil and write something—anything!

March 20 is World Storytelling Day. This holiday is celebrated annually on the March equinox. Every year features a focused theme, 2020 being “Voyages.” The tradition of World Storytelling Day is to encourage people from all over the globe to share stories orally in their native tongue. It also presents a great opportunity to embrace culture and to foster interpersonal relationships by listening to stories in other languages.

Check out these free and easy ways you can celebrate World Storytelling Day this year.

This isn’t a well-known fact, but I love thesauruses. I use one at least five days a week, multiple times a day while I work. As a curriculum lead, I’m always looking for the best ways to phrase our English Language Arts lessons so that students are exposed to a variety of words, particularly ones with nuisances. It just so happens that today is National Thesaurus Day.

As any new mom can tell you, the first few days with your newborn at the hospital are a blur. It was no different for my husband and me when we welcomed our daughter in 2016 at Heritage Valley Hospital in Beaver, PA.
