In my previous post I mentioned how students read through some books nominated for awards in order to get a good sense of what makes a story great. Joyce has asked me to share those books with you, however, I cheated a little bit when selecting the books. To tell the pure and honest truth, I just went to the library and borrowed picture books with Children's Book Council of Australia Award stickers on them! HOWEVER, I checked out the Children's Book Council of Australia website and here are some links to the nominees for this year and the winners from previous years. ENJOY! :)
I am currently teaching a Year 1 class. I love what I do and the kids I teach. I am easily inspired and love to find ways to improve learning for my students using a variety of strategies and ideas. My goal is to remain a flexible teacher, taking on board the new things I learn and modifying my practices as necessary.
I hope that I can motivate and inspire others in this same endeavour.
