Get your students excited about reading. When they complete a chapter book, have them fill out a Book Report! Should the book become a movie? They can explain if it should and why.
Once they have handed in the report it is the teachers responsibility to print a book ticket to add into the shadow box. You can buy a shadow box at Hobby Lobby. Get a size that works for you. I would prefer a larger one to fit the shadow box backdrop provided in the package. You may have to cut the poster to fit the shadow box you pick. Print them on card stock to last longer.
The idea is to fill the box. Keep track of books read on the Book-O-Meter. You will need to print, cut it out and past to a tag board. Once you hit 100… start another Book-O-Meter! Keep your shadow box in a place where students can see their progress. They like seeing the box fill up with the book tickets.
Use the Book-O-Meter Checklist
to keep track of how many books
have been read. Once the meter is
full, have a popcorn/movie
party. See how many meters
you can fill.
