As part of my classroom Daily 5 routine, my students Read to Self from their book boxes every day. In the beginning of the school year I put high interest books in my student’s book boxes for them and trade them out every couple of days. After a couple of weeks, I begin to teach my students how to choose their own books to fill their book boxes. This is called Book Shopping in my classroom and my students LOVE it!
Book shopping encourages students to select Good Fit Books AKA books at their reading level AND books that are interesting to them. I believe that student choice in selecting books makes reading more interesting and fun!
