nternational Dot Day. I will celebrate with my class this week by reading the book, making dot art and skyping with Mrs. Morgan's class from Texas.
Global Read Aloud once again this year. It runs from September 30th to November 8th. We will be reading Marty McGuire by Kate Messner.
ALA Youth Media Awards will be held on January 27, 2014. I held our Mock Caldecott during January and we were very rushed, so I think I might start in November or December this year.
Children's Book Week is May 12 - 18th. Last year I organized our school's first Author Visit with Peter Brown. It was a happy accident that it was during Children's Book Week. I hope to invite another author this year and expand activities for this week long celebration of children's books.
Poem in Your Pocket Day. This will be a new event that I add to my classroom literacy events and celebrations!
