It’s that time of year again!
No, not fall. Not hockey season, either–though actually it is both of those.
It’s time to select the titles for our school-wide Celebration of Reading.
In the past we’ve done a One School One Book celebration for our K-5 building. We’ve shared Hans Christian Anderson fairy tales, A Cricket in Times Square, Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library, and most recently A Snicker of Magic. It’s not easy selecting titles that will engage readers from 5 years old through eleven…AND keep families reading for the entire month of March. We had some terrific titles and generous authors (Thank you @_natalielloyd and @CGrabenstein!).
But this year, based on feedback from families and our PTO, we’re changing the celebration.
Ready to hear what it will be?
…A month-long #ClassroomBookaday challenge
The new celebration will be complete with classroom challenge, family #bookaday challenges, and a Stock Up Celebration for families at our local library after hours (technically just on their late night).
So this Booktober I’m reading scads and scads of picture book #bookaday candidates.
Hint: We liked these a lot! (Only 2 ½ more weeks of books to choose)
Today I’ll be returning the first test batch and scouring the stacks for recommended titles by authors H-Z…or maybe not so far. We’ll see how many I can stack in my arms after my bag is full!
