So Valentine’s Day is over and as we take down all the red and white and pink let’s throw up some green with gold glitter!
I’d love to start a new series of posts on teacher book picks. As a parent I’m always looking for fun and appropriate books for Row to read and as a teacher I was always looking for books that matched teaching objectives. I have collected-wait for it, wait for it…..a little over 3,000 children’s book since becoming a teacher and yes we still have all of them. Most are in the attic but a bunch are in the house too.
Let’s start with some fun St.Patrick’s Day books. I will include links as well. I find that Amazon generally has the best deals but I have gotten many books from resale shops as well.
This is a super cute series of books based on The Night Before Christmas poem. You can find a similar book for tons of holidays and I adore them!
The Gail Gibbons books are most suitable for children who are in Kindergarten and up or for those littles who love to research. Gibbons has a knack for writing non-fiction books in a kid friendly way with great illustrations. Honestly all of her books are super interesting.
Perfect for those toddlers! Touch and feel board books are perfect for Row. She loves the sensory part. I love the hard to rip board part and I can’t stress this enough books with few words are so important for toddler aged children. Sometimes we overwhelm children with too much too fast. This is a great way for children to explore “reading” and become confident with book knowledge.
I love a sing along book! This book follows the widely know I Know an Old Lady song. You can also find many variations of this book. Books that feature songs are fun ways to introduce predictable texts to children. Oh and it’s so cute!
I hope this gives you a few more books for your at home library. Do you have nay books you love? I would love to know!!! You know I need more books!
