Have a “Book Review” Box!
Have students fill out a “Book Review” paper and slip it into the box. This can be a recycled tissue box or really any small box that has (or you can add) a slit for papers to fit into. At the end of an author study, unit or once a month, pull the papers out and share what good books the class has read. Encourage and model to students use of the box by filling out slips occasionally after read alouds.
In small group settings, Book Review slips can be bound into a mini book and kept for student reference, sent home for summer reading recommendations, or several other uses!
