Coaching Series Replay—Using Favorite Picture Books for Strategy Instruction


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.

Using Picture Books for Strategy Instruction Recap

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. :)
