Add your name and student's # to these sticks. Print on cardstock and laminate to last longer. Use them in your in-class library so students can continue reading the same book, and your books stay organized.
My students find their stick from the bucket, choose a book, and place the stick in the book bin they took the book from. That way the books stay organized, and they know where to return it to when done reading. If they do not finish reading the book they chose and time is up, they can place their library stick in the book and place it back in the book bin. This acts as a bookmark, and as a notice to other students that someone is currently reading this book. :)
