It's Picture Book Month!

Picture books are important.  Picture books are powerful.  Picture books are FUN! Join me in reading, sharing and celebrating picture books throughout the month of November.  I will be keeping stats of the number of picture books checked out of the library, and each classroom has a tally chart to document any picture books read in class.  Students who want to keep track of the picture books they read, either at school or at home, can fill out their own calendar tally chart! Families reading books together totally counts!  The classroom with the MOST number of picture books read will win a prize!

I started out Picture Book Month with 3 great read-alouds in the library.  In first grade, we were wrapping up our author study of Brian Lies, so we listened to Bats at the Library and Bats at the Ballgame while creating bats for our final display.

With the Kindergarteners, it was Judy Sierra's Wild About Books that kicked off our picture book challenge!

Let's see how many picture books the Zervas Community can read in 30 days!

Read, Share, Celebrate!
