Do you love reading to your students?
Most teachers do - I know I LOVE reading to my Grade 1-8 students!
Even more importantly, I love teasing out what they can learn from the book I am reading with them.
I found that I would often read a really great book with a wonderful lesson inside the pages, but I didn't always know where to go from there.
How could I pick apart the main ideas?
How could I teach the lesson in the book in a way that my students would understand?
How could I make learning fun and interactive?
How could I get to know my students in a deeper way through storytelling?
To solve this 'problem' I decided to design plans for parents and teachers around children's books - particularly ones with valuable lessons.
If you would like some great plans on how to connect with your students through books that they will love, browse through the Lesson Plans on this site!
As you explore, you will find information on books, activities and how you can participate too, bonding with and empowering your students in the process.
Have fun and please contact me if you have any questions or would just like to give some feedback :).
Happy reading, sharing and growing!
