Chapter books. Y'all know that I really enjoy my day job as an elementary school librarian. However, I am a huge picture book fanatic. I'm not as keen on chapter books....I love them of course, but if I had my druthers, we'd be picture booking it all year long.
I especially enjoy working at school after the holidays. I find that after we get through the onslaught of Halloween through New Year's, the kids and staff come back ready to settle into a routine.
Thus, I always start chapter books with classes in January. Now, inevitably we'll get messed up with snow days, but so far, so good.
Earlier this week I was trying to decide what to read with second grade. I always read a different book to each grade, but this year I'm reading different books with different classes. I find that each and every class has a personality of its own and I have tried to select books that are tailored to the individual classes.
Here's a quick look at some of the books we're reading right now. I'm still working on picking the others. Any ideas out there?
