I hope you are well and have enjoyed the sunshine this weekend. We just came back from a bike ride to Central Park, keeping our physical distance, of course. It is a beautiful day and I am loving the cherry blossoms.
One of the things I have been missing most is reading aloud books to students in the library. Two of the “Big Ideas” in our English Language Arts curriculum are:
- Language and story can be a source of creativity and joy.
- Through listening and speaking, we connect with others and share our world.
So…I have created my first read aloud video for you to enjoy at home. Click here to view my read aloud of The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt with pictures by Oliver Jeffers. Many publishers are relaxing their copyright guidelines during this time and I am grateful to Penguin Random House for providing permission for me to post this video.
I hope this video brings you some joy and helps us connect even though we can’t see other at school. I will be also posting these videos in the Read Alouds page at the top of the blog.
