It's Monday! What Are You Reading? #classroombookaday

For the It's Monday! What Are You Reading? round up, go to

Last year, Jillian Heise read 180 books to her middle school students--one picture book a day.  She shared this idea and the power of the #bookaday at Nerdcamp this year.  I was intrigued and decided to give it a try.  We certainly read lots of books every day but often they are in connection to something.  I decided that this year, we'd end every day with a picture book. A book just because. (Ending the day with a picture book was Colby's Sharp's brilliant idea and it ends the day on such a happy note!)  This year, Jillian started a hashtag for teachers who were sharing books every day with their kids. It is #classroombookaday.  Some days we read a few more than one book but we've tried to end every day with a book. Here are the picture books we've shared so far, just because.


  1. This is a fun list! I read My Teacher is a Monster to my fifth grade class and we had a lot of fun with it.

  2. What a fabulous idea. The end of the day is always so chaotic and this might just be the answer I've been looking for.
