Comprehension Strategy, Genre, writing traits, Common Core standards and more! Seriously, I love books so much! I'd rather spend my money on books than food or shoes or clothes or chocolate (Okay, that's going a little too far) but you get my drift.

Here's my favorite book.
I purchased this book last year and my class loved the beautiful story about a little bird who is lying on the sidewalk with a broken wing. Everyone is in such a hurry that they walk by without even noticing. Everyone that is, except a small boy. He takes the bird home and cares for it until it is ready to be set free. This is a beautiful story about love, hope, caring and giving of oneself to care for others. Last year I used part of this story for a lesson on zooming in on a small moment.
Okay, tag YOU'RE it! Find your favorite book and tell me about it!
P.S. My friend Kim Adsit just released a GREAT resource for Readers Workshop. It includes mini lessons, anchor charts and much more! You can check it out here.
