We are stepping into a new month, which is full of love, fun, and hopefully lots of reading and learning. The name of this month comes from the Latin februum, which means purification. It is also the month of Saint Valentine’s, colourful Carnival celebrations and Mardi Gras. It is the month when winter (in the Northern hemipshere) and summer (in the South) ends, and a new season begins. Recently it has become the month of various important international days, among which our favourite is International Book Giving Day.
Check out the main events in February and remember to come back to read and download our resources and lesson plans based on them.
