#classroombookaday Summer 2020 Learning Opportunities

With no nErDcamps or conferences this summer, and likely into fall, I'll be missing several of my typical chances to share #classroombooakday with educators. So I've decided to offer some virtual options. The good thing is this gives everyone the opportunity to learn, not just those who are in the same physical space as me! 

There are two different sessions offered in June & repeated in July. 
#classroombookaday101 (June 23 OR July 22)
& a brand-new session I'm creating after school gets out that I'm eager to plan
Going Deeper with #classroombookaday: The Power of Critical Selection (June 24 OR July 23)

  • Sessions will be live via Zoom. Link will be sent the morning of the session and will be recorded for those unable to attend at the live time.
  • Recording link will be shared with those who registered after the session. Disclaimer: Link is provided for the sole use of the individual who registered & will only be available until the Sunday after the session.
  • Sessions will be 75-90 minutes depending upon length of Q&A at the end.
There is a registration fee (discounted if you register for both sessions) to help support my work and ability to offer other sessions for free. I'm hoping (assuming things go according to plan) to also offer a booktalk session with #cbadspotlight reveal as a free session later this summer & possibly a live Q&A virtual session at some point.
Sign up for one, or both, through the widget below. Or visit heisereads.ticketleap.com to register.

#classroombookaday Recommendations: You Do You - Picture Books Supporting Identity

Each month of this school year I am getting a chance to share a themed list of 20 recommended picture book titles for #CLASSROOMBOOKADAY read alouds in partnership with Follett Classroom. Each booklist is accompanied by a blog post explaining more in depth my thoughts in creating the list and why I chose those specific titles.

One of the great parts of this partnership is that my recommendation lists are also being saved in Titlewave which allows them to be easily found and shared with librarians for purchasing for school libraries!

My May list is in the spirit of You Do You & Identity!
