For our second class on March 5, we will read two more picture books, two easy readers, and one book about how art works:

We hope you will join our online pre-class discussion by following the links above.

    I appreciated Mo Williems play with punctuation in There Is a Bird On Your Head! I can envision fluency/prosody work with students in which teachers model how voice changes based on question or declarative statement (e.g., “There’s a bird on my head?” from the elephant and “There’s a bird on your head.” from the pig.)
