In this monthly coaching video, we discovered:
- four ways to find favorite picture books,
- two ways to find teaching points in our favorite books, and
- four ways to keep track of them when we find them.
One quick fix. There are two great twitter chats for books, and I got them mixed up in my presentation. @Shelfietalk hosts their chat every 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month using #shelfietalk.
The #titletalk chat is led once a month by Donalyn Miller and Colby Sharp. Now you have double the book-finding fun.
Share your learning with others! Post a favorite picture book and one strategy you will teach with it!
Don't forget the hashtag—#TDCcoachingseries
Want to know what my takeaway was? My mom called after watching the seminar and told me I used "lay" incorrectly. I should have said "lie" instead. So there you go. Great teaching tips and a free grammar lesson, too. :)
