PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

While our classroom library has a huge selection of titles, genres, authors and series, the students don't use it as much as I would expect.

I recently read a few great blog posts by 4th Grade Frolics and Micheal Friermood at The Think Builder regarding an event calendar for your classroom library.

Each month, choose a few days to hold special events in the library. Events we'll be having in Room 10 include:

Author Study: Taking a look at several books by the same author and learning a bit about their history.

Book Talks: Students can volunteer to give a 2 minute review of their current favorite book and try to 'sell' it to other students.

Hidden Treasures: I present a few of my favorite titles from the library and try to 'sell' them to students.

Twisted Book Hunt: Students are asked to pick out 2 books they think a fellow student might want to read (students pull their partner's name from a hat).

Flashlight Read-In: Students use Dollar Tree flashlights to read in a dark room.

Pair-It Day: Students work in pairs to find two books in the library that relate somehow and then present them to the class.

Book Bag Refresh: Students pick out new books for their reading book bags.

Book Raffle: Several books are put out and students get to put tickets in the cups to try and 'win' the chance to read the book.

Drop Everything: Students get to just readreadread for a solid amount of time during the day.

Bookmark It: Students get to put recommendation book marks in 2-3 books of their choice.

Author's Birthday: Birthdays of special authors-celebrate with a song and perhaps a letter to the author.

There are also blank cards that are easy to edit with your own ideas! I can't wait to revive our classroom library with these super fun ideas-have fun with your reading-crazy kiddos!

**Also great for a calendar pocket chart-cards fit perfectly!
