Each day we read a picture book for the pure joy of it!! Later we use those same texts to learn about summary, theme, characters, literary devices, and so much more. Students are able to access the books at any time since they are housed right in our classroom. They go back to these books time after time to quote the text in their writing and to make connections to their lives and the world around them. We are a NAESP-led school, and our principal, teachers, and other staff often join us as guest readers. “Books are sometimes windows, offering views of worlds that may be real or imagined, familiar or strange. These windows are also sliding glass doors, and readers have only to walk through in imagination to become part of whatever world has been created or recreated by the author. When lighting conditions are just right, however, a window can also be a mirror. Literature transforms human experience and reflects it back to us, and in that reflection, we can see our own lives and experiences as part of a larger human experience. Reading, then, becomes a means of self-affirmation, and readers often seek their mirrors in books.” ~Rudine Sims Bishop Our class participates in #ClassroomBookADay. By reading a picture book each day, we are able to enter discussions about race, culture, equity, and other social issues that affect our students. Students can see themselves in the books we read but can also visualize a greater world. Books are a gateway to science lessons, social issues, positive thinking, and so much more! Students cherish our classroom collection and take pride in sharing the lessons they've learned with others. Your support allows our classroom to experience #ownvoices authors and diverse/inclusive reading experiences. Thank you!
