City Signs

City Signs by Zoran Milich is a great book to compliment I Read Signs by Tana Hoban.  Each page is a five by seven photograph of people and places children might encounter in their everyday adventures.  Within each photo are pictures of signs which help children notices letters and words they might see everyday.  This helps heighten their awareness of environmental print.  I'm thinking this might be a great book to place in my building/constructing area.  Now, I need to balance and make time for this space in my work with children.

  1. I think this title may go with our unit on symbols. I am always looking for ways to help my first graders grasp the concept of symbols.
