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!
As the Covid-19 quarantine continues, you’re likely searching for fun activities to keep your children occupied. Try creating art. If your art supplies are limited and you’re stuck at home, don’t worry. Art is possible even with just a pencil and paper. Here are some fun artistic activities you can try with your children during the next few weeks.
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.
