I am so excited for tomorrow! I have big plans in store for this month-long celebration. We'll be creating projects and sharing our passion for picture books.
The signs are hung and the announcements are in the teachers' mailboxes. Next up: a notice for the parent newsletter.
We celebrated Picture Book Month last year and it was a very successful. My favorite project was the reading challenge. I delivered posters and stickers to each classroom, along with reading logs and instructions. For one week the students logged and marked the picture books they read. We had a school wide celebration at the end. The students were so engaged that I had teachers asking me to extend it! Visit the Picture Book Month Website for a media kit, calendar, ideas and links to author created activities.
Here are links to last year's projects:
