Welcome to Teaching with Picture Books!
I am a mother of two and the founder of Links to Literacy, an educational consulting company. After eight years at home with my children, I went back into the school system in the 2011-2012 school year. I am currently a school-based Staff Development Teacher.
My children have been exposed to books since birth (before, if you count the books I read to them in utero). When I taught, my classroom library was a focus of my room. I loved teaching with picture books in my classroom and love reading them to my own children. As a Staff Development Teacher, I have a room full of picture books to share with teachers when planning lessons. I also use them for PD as part of staff meetings.
For Teaching with Picture Books, I look for high quality literature that can be used to model reading comprehension strategies or the six traits of writing, mainly. I also blog at My Learning Life
which is the intersection of my lives as a reader, writer, mother, and teacher.
It is my goal to make this blog a resource for educators and parents, alike. If you like it, please share it!
