The Power of Picture Books
Picture books are powerful and engaging texts that can help all elementary students succeed in language arts, math, science, social studies, and the arts. Picture books appeal to students of all reading levels and interests. Please join us as we discover discipline-specific and cross-curricular activities that illustrate how picture books can be used in your classroom. Participants will walk away with an enhanced knowledge of how to effectively use picture books, as well as a book or two to add to their classroom collection.  This program is designed for teachers in grades K-5.
