Books Teachers Love is back! We took a break for the summer but, my awesome teacher blogger friends and I have all teamed up to bring you 12 perfect read alouds each month. We will be sharing books for the upcoming month on the 15th so that you have at least 2 weeks after reading to get all your books and ideas together to try out in your room. So here we go with our top picks for September!
Everyone has their favorite back to school read alouds, and so many people use the same books. I didn't want to pick a book that you likely already have a thousand ideas and activities planned for, so picking a book this month was really tough! I finally decided on Stand Tall, Molly Lou Melon by Patty Lovell.
If you haven't heard of this book, it is absolutely adorable and has a GREAT message so I guarantee you will not be disappointed. Molly is a quirky little first grader who is full of spunk. Thanks to her grandmother, she is proud to be unique and confident enough to handle any challenges thrown at her. It's a perfect intro to talking about a wide range of topics such as getting to know your classmates, bullying, and building confidence.
Want to try out these activities? You can grab the printables for FREE here!
But wait, that's not all! Each month, the Books Teachers Love Crew is giving away 4 of the books that we blogged about, and YOU get to choose the books you want! So scope out all 12 blog posts below, pick your favorites, and enter to win!
