ELTons 2010

“Teaching with Bear” won an ELTon 2010 Innovation Award last Wednesday night!! Such an exciting evening … great buzz about the Delfina Studios when we arrived there and it just got better as the evening went on. Lovely dinner and good company … and maybe a slight nervousness as we waited to hear who was going to win an award!   Everyone shortlisted had been invited.   It was great to be there and I was as speechless as Bear when we were called out…

Because of commitments on the following days I am only beginning to reflect on the whole event.  It was all so exhilarating – especially for Bear!!  Later when he recovered he set about examining the award… and now as you can see he’s got quite attached to it!

    Well done Mary! And well done Bear! And thanks for another great book. Looking forward to seeing more picture of Bear on his travels round the world with you – love his bow tie by the way.

      Thanks Paul and Sarah. Bear is so happy you noticed his bow tie! He’d never been to a big evening event before – just seen photos and heard stories. And he really wanted to fit in and look the part… a bit like the first day at school really!

    Congratulations Mary! The award is really well deserved. English for Primary Teachers and Teaching with Bear have been wonderful resources for me and the wonderful Marina and Natalia from Spain who have been on TP in my class in Dublin for the last few months. I have told them about the blog so I hope you will see a post from them soon!
