November is Picture Book Month! According to its website, Picture Book Month is "an international literacy initiative that celebrates the print picture book during the month of November." Each day in November has a different theme. The theme for November 5th was "seasons," so first graders and kindergarteners listened to Leaf Man by Lois Ehlert. Then we went outside, felt the warm sun shining down, smelled the crisp air, looked at the bright fall colors, and collected fallen leaves to make leaf rubbings. The kids were so excited to see the imprint of the leaf come through on their papers. After, many students were eager to check out Leaf Man and Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf, also by Lois Ehlert.
