Deireadh le Seachtain na Gaeilge 2014

Seachtain na Gaeilge has drawn to a close for another year and was widely celebrated in the Clare library branch network over the past two weeks. Staff members Seamus Ryan and Teresa Carmody O’Shea visited several branches to deliver fun interactive storytimes to children from 1st and 2nd classes in primary schools. Using our library books and story sack resources from An Mála Mór they regaled their young audiences with stories of Teidi and his daily exploits as gaeilge. The children were thrilled to help choose Teidi’s clothes and set out his breakfast things, all to be found in these wonderful resources from the storysacks of An Mála Mór which are based on the Primary School Curriculum. The sacks cover three topics, Mé Féin, Éadaí agus Bia. The main character ‘Teidi’, is a cuddly teddy bear with a variety of clothes specifically designed and made for him. The packs have been written and designed by primary school teachers and the books address verbs, prepositions and actions. They also include toy furniture and food for Teidi to make the packs more interactive for the children.
