I have a problem……I own A LOT of books. I love to read and I teach children to read so to say that I have a lot of books is really an understatement. I could open up my own library/bookstore if I wanted.
I am always buying new books. I love new books. I love to read them and share them and talk about them with my students. I recently bought a pack of 27 chapter books in a series. WHY? I don’t know I thought my students will enjoy them. However after some thought….and more thought I decided to give them to the another teacher today at my school as a gift. Why? She is moving to a new level and she does not have a lot of chapter books for her classroom. In fact I decided to give her all my chapter books. First graders can just enjoy amazing picture books.
