Resources from the National Book Center of Greece

I know I say it all the time, but I am a big fan of Evgenios Trivizas! Every time I introduce his books to my students they are always so excited and really have a good time listening. Today in one of my Kindergarten classes, we began reading the book ΠΟΙΟΣ ΕΚΑΝΕ ΠΙΠΙ ΣΤΟ ΜΙΣΙΣΙΠΗ and we had so much fun listening for rhyming words in Greek.

If you would like to listen and follow along to one of Trivizas' books on-line for free take a look at The National Book Center of Greece's children's site They have a number of books that children can listen to. A new book is added weekly, so make it one of your favorites and and introduce your child to the wonderful world of Greek authors and children's literature.

Happy reading!

Καλή Χρονιά!

Happy New Year!
What better way to welcome the new year than by making a Greek calendar and learning the months of the year.

To find a template for a 2011 calendar in Greek from Microsoft Office, click here.

Have your students draw a picture depicting each of the 12 months of the year, add those drawings to the calendar, bind and there you have it, a Greek calendar for 2011 for them to practice the months, days of the week and seasons. You could even go through each month to highlight special days like Easter, 25th of March, OXI Day etc.

I can't wait to get started making these tomorrow!
