I still love picture books, don’t you? This is the title of my next PD which I am currently working on and I have found Pernille Ripp an inspiration of all things picture book. My goal is to show middle school teachers the value in using picture books to teach those skills that are so difficult for students to grasp. I love the way you can infer from the text and the pictures. Figuring out the theme from the help of a monster or talking pig. How could these books not pull students in at any age.
Back to work…planning my PD, finding books to broaden my library, and learning so much while I do it.
If you have any picture books you would like to recommend for teaching a middle school ELA skill….Please comment and share.
I’ll post an update after the PD is given. I can’t wait 🙂
