Great beginning of the year book

***Back to School Read Alouds*** 30 books that will allow you to open a discussion and give students opportunities to make connections to your classroom. They also lend themselves well to teaching behaviors and expectations that will be enforced throughout the year.

This book gets everyone excited for what reading can do for you but also helps them to think about good fit books and what that means to readers as well.
