Scríobh Leabhar 2021-22
Information for Primary Schools Scríobh Leabhar is a project sponsored by Clár na Leabhar Gaeilge. The project is organised in partnership with various education centres throughout Ireland. Scríobh Leabhar provides primary school students with the opportunity to write, design and publish their own books in Irish. It promotes the reading and writing of Irish amongst young children. The children write, design and bind their own books under the direction of their teachers. The main focus of the project is the writing process itself. The project is very flexible, each child in the class can write their own book, or work together in groups, or the entire class can write a book. Children have two options in relation to the type of book they wish to write. Their book can be handwritten or teachers may use relevant educational apps to help the children to write digital books if they wish. The Professional Development Service for Teachers have created a list of literacy apps as a support for primary schools. Each child who participates in Scríobh Leabhar receives a certificate, a pencil case and colouring pencils.
