Introducing #cbadspotlight & the 2019-20 Monthly #classroombookaday Selections

#classroombookaday is celebrating it's 5 year anniversary this summer! I'm amazed this small thing I started in my 7th & 8th grade classroom back in 2014, to bring Donalyn Miller's #bookaday into the classroom with a daily picture book read aloud, has grown into something thousands of educators are joining in on with their own students. 
With all the conversations I was seeing online from participating teachers, I wanted to find a way to help deepen the experience, help connect teachers with those in other schools also implementing this initiative, and find a way to showcase inclusive authors and #ownvoices titles that I hope more teachers would know and share with students. 

Introducing #cbadspotlight
Connecting teachers and classes & spotlighting three picture books
each month for common titles to build conversations around.
Below are the 27 titles,
3 for each month September-May,
for the first year of #cbadspotlight!

I'm hoping to connect with the authors and illustrators of these books to try to line up some special content to feature on the blog during the month their titles are spotlighted to add to the conversations.
