#sol19- March 16, 2019
A brief moment in time yesterday really made me smile. We were getting ready to Read And Two Boys Booed as our #classroombookaday. Many students are in the ES production coming up next week and I knew it had good talking points about stage fright and more.
“This book is by Judith Viorst, ” I said, “the author of Lulu Gets a Little Sister (this was our first chapter book read aloud of the year).” “The illustrator is Sophie Blackall who illustrated…” I paused.
“Hello Lighthouse and she wrote it, too!” someone answered.
“Finding Winnie,” another child added on.
“And also all of the Ivy and Bean books,” someone else piped up.
Then I read aloud another great book to add to our shared knowledge.
Ah, I love my job! It is awesome to have students who “know” so many authors and illustrators. I love seeing the results of a slow and steady diet of sharing so many books. March IS magic- the time of year when I feel like they are just ready for so much!
