Classroom Connections

Reading is such an integral part of learning. It provides opportunities to foster interest and motivation, model fluent reading, engage students in discussing and analyzing a text, and demonstrate comprehension strategies. Not to mention the cross curricular connections you can make. But above all else, reading is fun!

Over the many years of teaching, I’ve collected and made note of picture books that connect with what we are learning and the standards being taught. I want to share them on my blog not only as a place of organization, but also a place where other teachers, parents, caregivers could access them.

It’s like a running record, if you will. I’m always adding when I can. If you have a book or an idea and want to share it with me to be placed on the ‘Classroom Connections’ page, drop me line. 🙂

Cats of all shapes and sizes scamper, stretch and yawn across the pages of this counting book.
