Reflection: Standards Alignment What Is Your Name? - Section 1: Prepare the Learner


I begin right at the beginning of the year showing the kids where the title and author's name are on the cover.  I usually tell the kids that all books have names just like all people have names.  That is how we identify each other and how we identify book.  This is also directly addressed in the Common Core standards, so it is important that students have mastery of it by the end of the year.  It often takes some kids the entire year to master author, illustrator and title, so I can never begin too soon!
