Is there an effortless way we can encourage kids to share what they are reading without absorbing too much of the instructional day?
Can it be poisonous to a child’s love of learning when they are forced to finish a book they dislike?
YES! And YES! This simple unit, Read this! Not that!, can be displayed using an interactive bulletin board throughout the year to inspire children to share the books they enjoy or abandon, vote on the books they like and use technology and creativity to create a commercial for the books they LOVE.
Two posters for students to brainstorm or share qualities they like or dislike in a book.
Poster for students to document enjoyable books for the year.
Poster with common core vocabulary outlining the goals and objectives of using an interactive bulletin board.
Students fill out a ticket if they read a book that is on the recommended board and attach it to the card.
Students can fill out a recommendation for books to read and books that aren’t so good. They must provide details explaining why.
Students can vote on a winning book each week, month or nine week grading period. Certificate included.
Book marks, voting tickets, and character cards.
Students can video 30 second book commercial advertising their book.
I hope you enjoy this interactive bulletin board unit and I hope to add on to it soon.
Have a fantastic day!
