I cannot believe how much fun we’re having with #classroombookaday, nor how many books we’ve already read! For all I know, we usually read this many books in 1st grade together (I’ve never officially kept track), but regardless it’s SO GREAT to watch the pictures get added and begin to fill up the door!
This week I think we added almost 20 books and I’m not sure we can pick a favorite!
I do have to give a huge shoutout to Keira’s mom (loyal blog reader!) who left us some GREAT suggestions when she was at school for Read With Your Roadrunner today that she thought we would love. And BOY was she right! I had never seen Red: A Crayon’s Story or Clancy the Courageous Cow before today but they will definitely be added to my classroom collection! Both fit in perfectly (like she said they would!) with our conversations about valuing everyone for their uniqueness and celebrating how everyone can do something really well (even if that thing ends up being a surprise!). Thanks for the suggestions! Feel free to share your books with us anytime you want! (That request goes for anyone, by the way!) 🙂
You are too kind. I want to read with your class everyday! I have never had a better audience. They really get into their reading!!
You’re welcome anytime–to bring books AND to read to us. Really. Want me to put you on the calendar?? 🙂
