Grateful for Picture Book

Yesterday I had the opportunity to attend a Beginning Teachers set of talks organised by the Toronto District School Board. My mentee was unable to attend but I decided to go anyway. I always learn some nugget of information on days like this. In addition, it was a good opportunity to connect with other teachers. I attended a session on play in the Early Years as I will still be teaching grade 1 and 2 in the upcoming year. I also want to improve on my guided reading practice, so I attended a session on this as well.

What I appreciated most from the day, though, was the gift each person received on their arrival – a picture book. Often the books are in English and I cannot use them but this year we received one in English and one in French. The English one I exchanged with someone for the French so I will be able to give my mentee a token from the day. I love the book I received – and I am sure the children will too. I already have an idea of how I am going to extend it. 🙂

This week I am grateful that I had the opportunity to attend the series of talks but, more especially, I am grateful for the gift of a French picture book.

        I heard two guys speaking Spanish the other night and I could make out about 25% of their convo – wish it was mas

  1. Colleen, what a wonderful day and it’s always good to refresh or learn something new. Your picture book was a thoughtful gift. I’m sure your students will enjoy it.
