2103 has been an amazing year for picture books! I can’t wait to share these 10 great titles from 2013 with my second grade students this school year!
I plan on sharing the song Yankee Doodle and a picture book with the same title. Then we are going to compare and contrast the original song with this very funny book!
I can’t wait to pair Mustache Baby with Fake Mustache by Tom Angleberger this year. The students love our mustache party after we finish Fake Mustache! This funny book will add to the fun!
This will be a great book to share with my students when we talk about friendship and getting along with others. Plus this book had me at “Hello”…. I mean “Unicorn”.
I am going to share this book at the beginning of the year. I think it will make a great mentor text for storytelling and personal narratives. I also plan to pair it with Gooney Bird Greene by Lois Lowry.
A great book to share at the beginning or end of the year to talk about summer vacation. I love the illustrations in this book. Adorable!
A great book to share on being yourself and self-esteem. I will also use it to teach about punctuation. An awesome read aloud book.
Such a fun book. Great mentor text for persuasive or friendly letter writing. I’m going to have my students make their case for their favorite crayon color. Personally, I plan to make the case for the color green. Support the crayons!
Doug Unplugged will go great with my robot theme. I will pair it with other awesome robot books such as Boy + Bot by Ame Dyckman and Rabbit and Robot: The Sleepover by Cece Bell. Doug Unplugged makes you want to unplug and discover the world.
I also plan to share this book at the beginning of the year. Great story to share about making friends, fitting in and accepting everyone.
So what 2013 picture books are you looking forward to sharing this school year? I look forward to hearing from you in the comments section.
