This is an awesome way to promote reading in your classroom.
Information about how the book clubs work in my classroom: Students must read and take an AR test on the books in each series. They must pass the test with 70% or higher for the book to count. If a 70% or higher is not achieved, that book may not count for club membership and the student must read another book. The book levels range from second grade and up for most series. After reading the number of books specified and taking and passing the AR tests, students will get a club membership card and the prizes noted on the Reading Club Sheets. Teachers use the checklist to write the % correct for each test taken in the club.
Reading Club Sheets – each club and prize can be printed 4 to a page. Cut the reading club sheet out and tape on the student’s desk or put in a reading club folder.
Membership cards – Print or write the student’s name on the card and print it on card stock. Laminate if possible
Prizes – each club has a prize that goes along with the book. Prizes can be changed depending on budget and student likes/dislikes.
Reading Club Bulletin Board – Create a bulletin board to display clubs and memberships to promote student reading. Add the information to your newsletters and parent communication.
