Well, hello again friends! Thanks for stopping by during the bright ideas blog hop!! There are so many fabulous ideas from my blogging friends, so I'm going to keep this short and sweet.

I wanted to share a few of my favorite tips for using picture books with older kids. I have taught grades 3-6 and found that students in all these grades enjoy listening to reading, even shorter texts the we may think only younger kids can enjoy!

I have found that shorter picture books, rich in meaning, can offer great reading and writing learning opportunities for older kids.

#### Tip #1:

Before introducing the text to the class, read it over and decide on 3-5 teaching objectives you can focus on before, during, and after reading the text to the class.

#### Tip #2:

Share your thinking that focuses on teaching objectives by stopping during reading and modeling what you are thinking.

#### Tip #3:

Invite students to share their thinking before, during, and after reading by having them turn and talk with a partner about what they are thinking as they are listening to you reading. (This way, everyone has a chance to share their thinking, not just the one or two students that always raise their hands and answer for the class.)

#### Tip #4:

LISTEN to students' thinking as they share with the class. Let their thinking direct your instruction. Take notes on the things they are noticing/thinking during reading. The things they are thinking about will lead you to create intentional future teaching that is highly engaging and appropriate.

Do NOT be afraid to get those big kids on the carpet!! It's a great way to keep them focused and making time to talk with partners quick and easy!! |

*** Here are just a few of my favorites short texts to read aloud with older kids. Check out the list of teaching objectives that would be great to use to develop deep meaning.

#### Ira Sleeps Over

1. Build a sense of classroom community by having each student share items they have slept with when they were younger. Or have them share something their brother, sister, cousin sleeps with.

2. Recognize rising and falling tension in a story.

3. Judge the main characters based on the things they do and say in a story.

4. Identify problems and solutions in stories.

5. Analyze how characters attempt, but fail, to solve problems.

6. Compare how the main characters are alike and different.

#### The Man Who Walked Between the Towers

1. Form opinions about real people in biographies, using evidence from the text to support your opinions.

2. Consider how illustrations in a text add to the meaning of the words.

3. Identify the setting (time and place) and consider how the events would be different if the time in which the events occurred were different.

4. Infer the reasons behind the main characters' actions.

5. Identify the author's purpose and message

6. Consider different possible solutions to problems in a story.

As you can imagine, the list of teaching objectives from just these two books could go on and on!

So, the next time you see a picture book, don't think it is too easy for your students. And don't even worry if they have read it before. They are older now; they will look at the book with a new perspective. If you look closely and keep an open mind, you will likely find countless teaching opportunities!!

If not, just read it to the class and ask them what they are thinking. Their ideas will spark so many teaching opportunities you won't have enough time in the day to cover them all!
