Become Familiar With New Children's Books This Summer
- Grades: 3–5
Are you stuck in a rut when it comes to books you use in your classroom? Do you have your “go-to” favorites that you read aloud each year because you know them so well and love them so much? I do! But I also have a goal to expand my read-aloud repertoire for each school year. I take some time in the summer to become familiar with some of the MANY great children’s books published in the past few years.
Some great resources to help you choose new children’s books include lists of Newbery Medal and Honor books and Caldecott Medal winners. My Top Teaching colleague Danielle Mahoney has created some awesome booklists for many months of the school year, including October, November, December, January, March, and April.
