I found out that I did not have near enough big books for shared reading last year. My students were hungry for these wonderful big books. I use big books in my kindergarten classroom 180 days of the year serving every single child. Shared reading is a highly effective interactive experience when my little ones can join in through echo and choral reading, identifying vocabulary words, filling in the rhyme. Language and early skills are fostered through picture walks, questioning, discussion, finding letters in context, understanding story elements, deep understanding of concept of print, sequencing of events, predicting and inferring. These 20 books would afford all of these wonderful learning opportunities for my students. Reading is the heart of everything we do and I must provide the experiences to produce successful readers.
