Using Picture Books in the Classroom

Just One More Story: Using Picture Books to Build Community K-12 with Lori Emilson

Please join the Manitoba Reading Association in a Virtual PD session featuring Lori Emilson on Saturday February 6th at 10:00 am.

Reading picture books aloud in any classroom helps students develop identity and empathy, builds community and provides an opportunity to explore social justice issues. This session will introduce participants to picture books that are ideal for use in K-12 classrooms, providing an opportunity to curate a diverse classroom library and build a great stack of mentor texts.

Lori Emilson is a Curriculum Support Teacher in Lakeshore School Division, with over 30 years’ experience teaching Literacy. She organizes and leads the Lakeshore Book-a-Day divisional initiative, and is the President Elect of the Manitoba Reading Association.
