Here is a great way to get your students excited about reading! This can be used in the school library or your classroom library. I developed this because I had a lot of students requesting that I buy the same books, and I could never decide the fairest way to decide who could sign out the book first.
Now, every time I am ready to put out a new popular book, I put up the new book draw sign, some ballots, and a box, and the students who want to sign out the book fill out a ballot. At the end of the week, I draw a winner. The kids can't wait for the end of the week, and are so excited to see who the winner is. And as far as I am concerned, if it gets kids excited about reading - everyone is a winner, right?
My plan was to put out a whole bunch of books during parents night, and use it just for one night, but the draws have created so much interest and excitement about reading, I have decided to keep some as regular displays in the library.
In this package, I have included the following
-"New book draw" titles in both black and white and colour
-a New book draw poster (explaining what the draw is) in both black and white and colour
-ballot forms (6 on a page)
-a certificate/letter to notify the winners (1/2 page)
I am always open to editing or adding to my ideas, so please contact me with any ideas, questions or suggestions!
