In our classroom, we spend a lot of time reading quality children’s books and extending the ideas, characters, or art in a variety of ways throughout the classroom. The goal of each read-aloud experience is to help young children develop a love for reading and to build connections between reading and their everyday world.
You can see many of the books we love to read in the list of titles below as well as a variety of ways we extend and build on our favorite children’s books throughout the classroom.
