|Join us February 19th for this|
Last August, Julie Balen of Write at the Edge, suggested a similar event featuring nonfiction might be fun. Mandy and I are always up for a little challenge, and thought Julie was exactly right. For some time now, publishers have been improving the nonfiction releases for young readers. As educators, we are fortunate to have so many interesting nonfiction books to add to our classroom libraries. Now, with the release of the Common Core, there is even more discussion focused around nonfiction.
It has been six months since our picture book event. Many of us are stuck inside as temperatures plummet and snow covers our roads. We thought this might be the perfect time to talk about nonfiction. There has certainly been a lot of banter about nonfiction on Twitter. We're wondering what are the 10 nonfiction books you cannot live without in your classroom? What books do your students love? What nonfiction books would you suggest for other educators?
Julie, Mandy and I are hosting a nonfiction picture book event.
- What: 10 nonfiction books you can't live without
- Hashtag: #nf10for10
- Who: Anyone interested --- educators, media specialists, librarians, parents, etc.
- When: Tuesday, February 19th
- Where: All posts will need to be linked here at Reflect and Refine on February 19th.
Start creating stacks of your favorite nonfiction and consider the 10 nonfiction books you just couldn't live without. On February 19th --- because as Mandy said, "9 favorite nonfiction books plus your 1 very favorite is 10" --- link your post to this blog. (Yes, I teach first grade...I know that 1 is really a ten. Bahahaha. It's a stretch, but work with us here.) I will then compile the posts into a Jog that will be a terrific nonfiction resource for everyone.
We hope you'll join us!
