Exploring the Power of Read Alouds: Using Picture Books as Co-Teachers to Layer Literacy & Life Lessons

In addition to fostering a love of reading, read alouds promote passion, enthusiasm and a curiosity for pictures and words. Participants will identify picture books with a lens for “heartprint books” that can be layered with conversations to contribute to caring classroom communities. Explore read alouds to promote more reading-writing connections, complement existing units of study, encourage student led-conversations, or foster stand alone lessons that strengthen caring, responsive, inclusive communities. Participants will leave with an abundance of resources and a framework for choosing and selecting texts (heartprint books) to connect literacy and social-emotional learning to reach and teach the whole child. Explore titles, tools, and tips to adopt or adapt for any classroom.
