This is a fun and creative way to survey your students' reading interests at the start of the year as well as put them on display in your classroom! I've hand-drawn this book decoration and scanned the document to upload, here. This will fit a 4x6 photo of your student holding up their favorite book. Your students are free to color it and complete the sentence starter, "I love to read books about...". Included on the worksheet are 12 ideas on what books can be about to help guide your students' thinking. Also included on the worksheet are instructions and an example sentence. I display my students' books on clothespins attached to yarn along the top portion of my wall. These could make a great bulletin board, as well!
It is so important to survey your students' reading interests. Turning every kid into a lover of reading requires that they first read what they'll truly enjoy!
