It is important to keep track of the books you have read in your classroom! Posting the books you have already read as a class helps teach literacy skill that are essential to budding readers. An easy way to track the books you have read is to create a Classroom Book Shelf!
A great display for the whole year! Put it on a wall or your bulletin board.
Just print, laminate, and write your titles.
Includes Editable book spines!
Creating a Classroom Book Shelf has so many benefits!
By making a Classroom Book Shelf, students have a visual trigger to remember the books we have already read together. The Book Shelf serves as a visual memory board. And not just for the students, but for me too! I sometimes forget that we have already read a great book that connects with whatever skills I am teaching. Having a list of all of the books we have read triggers my memory and connections as well.
Most books have elements to it that can be beneficial when you are teaching a reading skill. And some books are great for teaching multiple skills. But who has time to read each book over and over! Instead of reading the books again, just reference the Classroom Book Shelf!
Other benefits include making a visual time line for the books you have read in class, highlighting that reading and comprehension are important, and demonstrating that each book has something to offer us.
Classroom Book Shelves also give your students a sense of accomplishment. This is so important for our struggling readers. Maybe these lower readers can’t read that particular book on their own. But since we read it as a class, it is on “their” shelf. They have in essence “read” the book just like the better readers in your class. You have granted them access to a book that was beyond their reach AND listed it on THEIR book read list.
