Join Lee & Low Books with a special appearance from author Lesléa Newman and artist Maya Gonzalez, for an informative session on using picture books as mentor texts for grades PreK-5. Senior Literacy Manager Katie Potter will share 4 brand new picture books from Lee & Low:
- I Can Be...Me! (March 2023);
- Breaking to the Beat! (May 2023);
- Tenacious: Fifteen Adventures Alongside Disabled Athletes (June 2023); and
- Fresh Juice/Jugo fresco (July 2023).
Katie will provide tips for initiating discussion around each text along with examples of activities to do with students. Participants will come away from this 2023 Share My Lesson Virtual Conference session with a better understanding of the power of picture books to teach, inspire, and transform young people, as well as ready-to-implement teaching strategies and classroom activities to pair alongside the books.
