Over the past week, I have watched as our teaching community has come together to share resources with one another in hopes of helping get them started on this new distance learning journey. It has been truly amazing!
One thing that I've seen come out over and over again is to . Make sure the kids are reading at home, being read to, being read with. Although I firmly believe they should still practice some other skills during this time, I am also a firm believer in the power of picture books as a teaching skill.
I've compiled this list of eleven suggestions (plus a handy cheat sheet for parents) for parents to use after they've read a picture book with their children. These are easy to implement, fun for students, and straightforward for parents.
Please feel free to save it to your drive and upload it for parents to use as a resource.
