IASL 2012 Conference, 11 to 15 November 2012
Every culture has proverbs and traditions regarding good luck and bad luck. People make a wish and hope that it comes true. We see that hard work can overcome bad luck – and that being lazy can undermine the strongest good luck charm.
The GiggleIT Project wants your students to interview family members about good fortune, bad luck, and hard work, then use this inspiration to create poems about lucky things and stories of the balance between good luck and bad luck in our 2013 Spotlight Projects:
Lucky Object Poetry

The GiggleCritters love to laugh, so they are searching the world for student-created
tall tales and funny stories,
tongue-twisters and jokes,
limericks and poems,
stories about your special part of the world.
Please join the GiggleIT team as we make new friends and learn about what makes us laugh on our journey to read, write and chuckle our way around the world. Our Lucky '13 theme ends on 31 December 2013, so register and send in your students' work soon.
The GiggleIT Project is a partner with the International Children's Digital Library
