⭐WHY A BOOK A DAY?
The #abookaday challenge was created by Donalyn Miller, author of The Book Whisperer.

For the past two years I have committed to reading aloud a book a day to my students and the impact has been great. In the past two years (more so than the seven before) my class became a group of learners that valued reading. If an early dismissal or assembly altered our schedule, I would have to find another time to squeeze in the read aloud because the kids were not willing to take a day off.

⭐WHY I CREATED THIS RESOURCE
I created this resource to help teachers fulfill their #abookaday challenge in a meaningful and simple way without compromising consistency or depth.

I try to plan my read alouds a unit at a time so that I am not scrambling, but I was still winging it through unless I had set aside time to come up with discussion questions and extension opportunities for eager kids or for when we had extra time. I started created mini PowerPoints for the read alouds so that everything would be in one place when I sat down to read the book of the day. Those PowerPoints have been combined and polished to create this resource that I hope will help other teachers implement a book a day in an easier and more consistent way.
