This could actually be MY favourite day. January 2nd 1920 is the actual birthday of Isaac Asimov, a well-known science fiction writer. Two of his most famous books are "Nightfall" and "Foundation Trilogy". He has written and edited more that 500 books and he was the person who coined the term "robotics" in one of his stories. A lot of books have been inspired by his work.
What to do on that day?
Start a science fiction book or a story.
Watch a science fiction film or series.
If you want to do something special with your students, have them draw an alien and write a story about his / her life and environment.
Or have them describe an imaginary gadget of the future.
Whatever you do, have fun!

I think that this is also a day for me. Although I am a bit "out of order" lately, I thing this is an opportunity to get back on track!
What to do on Yoga day with your children or your students?
Try some simple exercises to stretch. These are much needed in the past few months, since everybody spends so much time sitting in front of the screen and learning or working.
If you are a teacher, you can practise vocabulary with body parts and movement verbs.
And how about some simple meditating for you and your students to relieve stress? Follow the link t find out more!
