*As you know I love books. I love novels. I also love picture books.
*We share picture books each and every day for #classroombookaday. The class has an extensive bulletin board where we keep track of what we have read together as a class.
*March is a very special time in our classroom. We celebrate March Madness and we celebrate picture books. This activity is one of my most favorite things we do all year.
*We begin with 32 picture books. I pick the books based on my audience and the type of listeners/learners they are.
*Each day I read TWO books to the class. We discuss our noticings and wonderings. A discussion about theme is also had.
*The students then head to their iPads and do some voting for their favorite. I use SurveyMonkey to collect the results.
*We started our voting on Tuesday of this week and will continue for the next sixteen days.
*Here are some pictures of the start-up of Picture Book March Madness 2018...
