It's Picture Book Month!

Wow. Is anyone else feeling like time is flying by? For all of November, we have been celebrating Picture Book Month - reading, sharing and creating all things picture book. There has been Skyping, reader's theater, story sharing, book trailer watching and bookmark creating.  I'm hoping the students are having as much fun as I am reading, sharing and tracking some amazing books.  Here's a little peek at what's been happening:
Green by Laura Vacarro Seeger - you've GOT to watch this. Booktrailers ROCK.
4th graders Skyped with 2/3rd graders in Sharon, MA. Thanks Ms. Drew! (@erinlibrary)

2nd graders answer the question "Why read picture books?"

5th graders rank their TOP TEN picture books via google form

Our community picture book reads!

1st graders wrote sentences from "found" words - based on a word hunt inspired by Rocket!
5th graders create a VoiceThread to verbalize thoughts about picture books.

Picture books are... AWESOME!
