Product Description
Several times a year, my students participate in a Book Buffet during which they "sample" different books that they might like to read for their Independent Reading. I bring in about 35 books and place 5 books on the desks of every group of students. Then, students sample the books by looking at the back cover and/or reading the first couple of pages. If they like the book, they write down it's "Vital Statistics," like title/author. After 3-5 minutes of sampling the books at their table, the students rotate to a new table to sample new books.

The file I'm offering is the grid on which students write down the book's vital statistics. I have found this resource to be invaluable when we go to the library because every student then has a list of books he/she might be interested in reading. Even reluctant readers have been very successful at finding a match using this idea!
