Favorite Books For Fall

I am joining my Kinder Friends to share some of our favorite books to read during the Fall. The book I have chosen is not really a themed book but is an amazing title to help continue beginning of the year learning through fall.

The book that I would like to share is called The Book With No Pictures by B.J. Novak. It is a great way to show your K/1 kiddos how to read a book with expression and to really focus on comprehending the type of character that is talking in a story. It models how as a reader you should adjust your tone and voice to sound like what you think the words would sound like. This story is a very engaging read aloud. When I read it to the students, I stop and pause and model how to actually think about what the words are saying in order to adjust to them. Sometimes I will have them repeat the words after me. Then I challenge the students to go back to their reading spots and try it out with books of their own. It is certainly a text that I use in the fall to get the student's minds prepared for all of the character work that we do at the beginning of the year, but it is also a great book to refer back to through the year. If you are interested in this book,  You can get it here. 

I hope you give this book a try in your classroom this fall. Now hop on over to my friend Cristina at The Primary Besties to find some more great fall titles!

Back To School Giveaway

Here in Florida we are preparing for Hurricane Irma. All of South Florida is in a state of emergency. Several of my family and friends have chosen to evacuate however my husband and I are staying.  We are putting up the hurricane shutters, filling all containers we own with water poured through a filter, stocking up on gas and food, and tying down tree branches.  I hope that all of you will keep my state in your prayers through this weekend and after when clean up begins.  The fact of the matter is that this storm is much, much wider than our state so no matter where you are, you will feel the effects. Stay safe everyone!!!
