This quick guide breaks down a list of classic and contemporary favorites so students can easily choose a book similar to the one he or she has just read or introduce them to a new genre. Categories include: Adventure, Multicultural, Family and Siblings, School Stories, Historical Fiction, and more. There's even room for you to add your own categories.
Print out the lists and place them in a folder in your classroom library or school library. I will have about five in my school library this fall for multiple students to view.
- Have students highlight books in your collection.
- Have students add to each list/genre as they read more titles.
- Have students place a star next to their favorites as recommendations.
I plan to update about once a month or so and will alert you of new titles.
