Some of you may be out of school as communities try to prevent the spread of a virus known as COVID-19. Here’s a great page from NPR that explains what that’s all about, in a kid-friendly comic. National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature Jason Reynolds shares “How to Fight the New Bad Guy in Town,” a PSA for kids, on the StorySeeds podcast here. And this excellent & important post from author Laurie Halse Anderson does a great job explaining why we’re seeng closings (and why that’s important in some cases) for older readers. Below, you’ll find a growing collection of resources that include everything from first-chapter and picture book read-alouds (shared with permission from publishers!) to drawing and writing mini-lessons. Be sure to check back often, as new resources will be added every day." Show less
