#ClassroomBookaDay Picture Book List

After doing #ClassroomBookaDay the past two years in my middle school ELA classroom, I have had a number of requests to share the titles we have read.  Well, those lists are finally complete! It took a little longer than expected because I never wrote down the books we read during the 2016-2017 school year.😬  Thankfully, I had a picture of our bulletin board to go off of. This past school year, I got a little wiser, and I wrote down the titles in my Notes app every time we filled up a row on our bulletin board.


Speaking of our bulletin board, it was always fun to watch it fill up with the covers of the books we read.  We used it as a reference throughout the year to compare books, themes, and illustration styles. I used a bulletin board space that was about 6’ x 8’.  With the help of my husband/teacher, he tediously measured and drew the 180-box grid, creating 5” x 5” boxes.
I got most of the pictures of the book covers from Amazon, Goodreads, or the author’s/publisher’s website, and then copied and pasted them into Google Slides.  
I was able to put two covers on each page, and with the vertical and horizontal guides, I could make each book cover the same size each time (about 3.5’ x 4.5”). Thankfully, my school has a colored printer that I was able to use to print off all of the covers.

Here are some other #ClassroomBookaDay displays that are really cool too!

Some people have asked how I choose which picture books to read.  Sometimes, the books had to do with what we were learning at the time (figurative language, character traits, etc.), holidays or events (Valentine’s Day, September 11, etc.), or units (Holocaust, Mock Caldecott, etc.).  But other times, we would read newly released pictures books or other books just for fun! No assignments or homework was given after reading the book. None! I wanted students to simply listen, discuss, and enjoy!

If you are a middle school teacher who is a little skeptical about reading picture books to your students, you are not alone.  When I first decided to do #ClassroomBookaDay, I thought my students would think picture books were babyish, and they wouldn’t like being read to.  But once we started, the discussions we had, the things they noticed about the illustrations, and the connections they made were amazing. By the end of the school year, many students commented that #ClassroomBookaDay was their favorite part of our class.

So without further ado, here is the complete list of #ClassroomBookaDay picture books used during the 2016-2017 and 2017-2018 school year!

  1. Christina: I will be teaching an informational/media literacy class this coming school year. I will have all 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students within my building for one quarter each. I REALLY WANT TO DO BOOK A DAY. However, I was looking for your thoughts on the following: 1. Should I read the same book each day to all three grade levels or a different book for each grade? 2. Should I rotate the books back through for each quarter or just keep moving ahead to read the 180 books?
    Thanks so much for you input.

  2. Love this idea! We are going to do a picture book a week but were wondering if there was a master list of what each book focused on, for the ones that had a focus. Thanks!
