Want to get your students interested in your classroom library books? Then you must do the Book Pass Activity!
1.) Make small groups of 4-5 students or 6-7 students and place their chairs in a circle.
2.) Place a carefully selected book on each chair.
3.) Pass out the Book Pass Activity Log sheets to each student. Have students fill in the title of the book and starting page.
4.) When the timer starts, students should look at the book on their seats (front cover, back cover, blurb on back) and read the first few pages until the timer stops. Time students for 3 minutes.
5.) Students are to then fill out the "ending page" and comments columns with thoughts about their book. They should also include whether or not they would like to read it.
6.) Repeat until all the books in each group have been previewed by each student.
