It's 10for10 Picture Book Day!
10for10 Picture Book Day is one reason I look forward to August! Getting new picture book ideas is always fun, but my favorite part is seeing how people put picture book ideas together. I see ways to put picture books together that I never would have thought. So many wonderful ideas as we start our new school year.
Thank you Cathy Mere at Reflect & Refine and Mandy Robek at Enjoy and Embrace Learning for organizing this day. Stop by the Google Community to see even more ideas, or look for the hashtag #pb10for10.
I seem to go with a theme for this day, I guess my mind is always on the start of the school year at this time of year. Last year, my #pb10for10 post was about 10 books you could use for Quick Writes at the beginning of the year. See that post here. Sticking with the beginning of the year theme, here are 10 books that would be great to use at the beginning of the year. Whether it's to set the tone of your classroom community, give ideas on how to problem solve, or to put the new year in perspective, these books are sure to give you and your students a lot to talk about!
