How is this even a blog post? It’s not at all a unique thought! Picture books beg writing responses. Why draw kids in with the best story without inviting them to create like the authors and illustrators of the story? You don’t even have to work hard to “hook” students. Just read the book!
I’ll start with a few books that specifically prompted writing, in my Pre-K classroom, but there are a million more, and I will make other posts when I find other activities, pretty much every time I read. Ha!
Baby is waking up from nap, so that’s all I have time to share for now, but I will post more ideas soon!
My name is Laken Slate. I was an elementary school teacher for six years, before becoming a mom. I am set to graduate with a master's in Curriculum and Instruction in July 2021! Someday, I would love to be a picture book author. I am represented by the world's greatest literary agent, Joyce Sweeney :)
