I hope your kiddos find these fun to use in your classroom!
I often struggle getting my kiddos to be motivated readers. So, I thought this would be a great way to motivate!
Kids LOVE showing off the books they are able to read! Now, they can! Each student gets his/her own bookshelf to display "books" he/she has read! When they complete a book, they can add that book title to their bookshelf for all to see!
Option 1: Print and laminate a series of books and place them on their "bookshelves." As students read, they use a sticker or marker board marker to mark the display book to represent each new book read.
Option 2: Print, laminate, and cut several "books" individually. When a student completes a book, they can choose which "book" they would like to add to their display. With the larger version, they can write the title of the book they completed on the "book" on their bookshelf.
Teacher can decide to reward students who have filled up their shelf with x-number of books.
The names on the shelves are editable so that you can type in each student’s name if you wanted to.
The file contains 36 different book templates.
I have also included a cute display of the bookshelves with the heading, "Look at us READ."
Are you a reading street user? I have included titles of Reading Street 2013 First Grade curriculum stories AS WELL AS editable book templates if you wanted to type in book titles your class/student is reading.
Don’t have much room to display in your classroom? That’s ok! I plan to use these on necklaces my students collect their brag tags on. Heard of those? Well, for each story they read well, I will hole punch that “book tag” and they can add it to their chain.
I hope you find these useful in your classroom!
