Happy Picture Book Month!


Dear Reader, 

Happy Picture Book Month! I LOVE Picture Book Month. No! I REALLY love Picture Book Month. I've been counting down the days until November 1 for eleven months. 


During Picture Book Month, my students will...


*read TONS of picture books. (Readers can check out as many picture books as they want.) 




*set Picture Book Month reading goals. 


*use Biblionaisum to keep track of the books they read. 



*Skype with virtual friends about Picture Book Month. 


*see various Picture Book Month announcements around the library and school, including...





        -the official Picture Book Month calendar


         -Picture Book Month bookmarks.


        -a Picture Book Month flyer

 -excerpts from Picture Book Month essays



 *participate in a Mock Caldecott with Mr. Colby Sharp's students. We will Skype throughout the month and possibly connect via Edmodo




I hope you have fun celebrating Picture Book Month! 

Happy reading!

-Mr. Schu

  3. I love picture book month! Granted I'm partial to picture books since I write them but that shouldn't matter. The truth is I think we move our kids away from picture books and into chapter books too soon. The visual along with the words are so important to language development. I still read picture books to my 8yr old even though he is reading chapter books by himself.
