#NCTE18 #classroombookaday Presentation

I was thrilled to be able to bring #classroombookaday to NCTE this year, especially with some amazing educators who discussed their different angles on how they have implemented it at their schools at roundtables, paired with incredible authors/illustrators talking about the value of picture books for all ages. Although I can't recreate those conversations for you, I can at least share the slides I used for my 20 minute origin story and overview of #classroombookaday, with some of our joint book recommendations at the end.

My #NCTE18 #BuildYourStack #classroombookaday Picture Book Recommendations

I was honored to be asked to be a part of the debut year of Build Your Stack presentations at NCTE18 in Houston. It was a lot of fun, and a bit of a challenge, deciding which books to share in a 20 minute session in the exhibit hall. I focused on some new favorite picture book titles for #classroombookaday read alouds & ended up with 21 slides and 70 books to booktalk in just 20 minutes. And I made it through them all! :)
