I love reading to my kids, and research has shown the importance of reading picture books to kids of all ages. I teach 5th graders, and I want to join in the Classroom Book a Day movement. I tried it last year, but found it difficult to attain books that interested my students that they hadn't already read. I tried the public library as well, but struggled to make time to search for books, and then return them in a timely manner. I am hoping to start a library of my own, with books chosen to engage and expand my students thinking. I want to offer genres that they may not have looked at before. I see the power that picture books have, and I know that reading one picture book per day will keep our read-aloud time exciting, and engaging! I am so excited to try this again next year, and I am hoping to get a head start on creating the library of books that will help me be successful!
