I put together a list of board books sure to delight the smallest picture book aficionados. (They're my little one's favorites right now.)

Last month, we were introduced to the term “alternate facts.” Rogue accounts for the National Park Service and other government organizations popped up after a gag order was put in place. A piece of legislation was introduced to ease regulations to drill in our National Parks. These three things (and more) were the inspiration for my 2017 Nonfiction Picture Book 10 for 10 List. Because now, more than ever, scientific evidence and facts matter.

Lisa Keeler’s recent #TWTBlog post made me realize many children kids aren’t getting enough exposure to realistic stories where they see themselves reflected on the page. Therefore, I created list of ten picture books, all of which have been or will be released this year, that will help kids see their own lives reflected in a book. By choosing to share one or more of these books in your classroom, you will provide your students with an opportunity to know they aren’t alone AND that they can write a personal narrative on a similar topic.

I love that YOU gave them a chance to problem-solve and work this out. You facilitated a meaningful discussion. Wow! You're so impressive, Elisa.

I use Evernote to scan and file as much paper as possible. YET, I still have a huge pile on my desk that needs some serious tackling. I'm sure there's stuff I need in it, but who has the time to get to it when SOLSC is happening, I have page proofs to examine, and my new semester just began? Seriously, like you, the pile will wait. (Will send you a pic of my leaning pile just so you can have a good laugh.)

These are wonderful roles to have. So many ways to be a single person!
Welcome to Slicing, Ashley. I'm delighted you've chosen to join us for the SOLSC!

I'm sharing ten nonfiction picture books I have been using as mentor texts with elementary school writers. These are ten of the twenty books I've written lessons for in my forthcoming book, Craft Moves: Lesson Sets for Teaching Writing with Mentor Texts, which will be available from Stenhouse later this spring.

I can feel your pain and the longing in your writing, Kathleen. You will steer Alex towards the right path. I know you will. It may take many, many conversations, but he will get there.

Love the idea about being the chief collector. That's stellar.

Donalyn's post has been rattling around in my mind for the past few days. It begs the question of how we get those who aren't ready (or don't want) to walk the walk to walk the walk AND talk the talk. 

I'd love to start a conversation around this specifically in terms of writing (since Donalyn has started it about reading). How do we preach to those who aren't writing daily to get them to be teachers who write. 

Maybe a Voxer group about this (through TWT) would be a good start. I'd love to work with you to find ways to preach beyond the choir.
