Doreen Cronin is the Author of the Month for November in First Grade. I thought it was the perfect choice with the elections, her book Duck for President is hilarious.I collected some free resources and have a link for them here. I also have some links for the stories I found on youtube.
I put together some qr cards with books jackets for the listening center. You can pick those up free here. I mount them on colorful card stock and hang them up in the reading center. What I like about the posters is that they serve two purposes: 1. decoration and 2. They have qr codes on them that the students can use with the ipads as a listening center.
Below are some great ideas I found on Pinterest. I really like the last activity.
