Authors' Birthdays, Freebie, Author Study

Celebrating authors' birthdays is a fun way to add author studies to your lessons throughout the year.
•Collect books of authors who celebrate their birthdays for a week at a time.
•When students visit the birthday center, they will choose one book to read.
•Students will then complete one of the assignments.

You can hang up their assignments, let students share their thoughts about the books they read, or make a monthly class book of the students’ assignments which is a free download.

I also have a Pinterest board with videos and other helpful information about authors of children's books.
The follow authors are celebrating their birthdays in September.  I will also give links to some popular books by the authors.  Click on the pictures for more information.
