Quick Teaching Tip - Book Recommendation

Confessions of a Frazzled Teacher

I love books! I love reading! I hate when I think my students are not reading enough or enjoying reading. I know that just talking about how much I read and some of my books was not enough for my students. I made a few changes and got INCREDIBLE results. Here's what I tried...

* I made a poster for students to recommend books for me to read.

Nothing fancy! We use post-it notes, so that I don't have to keep making posters.

* I use suggestions and choose that as my current read.

* I write the books on a Miss Barker is Reading poster.

Unfortunately, I couldn't get a better pic. I just have a dollar store picture from that I write on with a dry erase marker. Works perfectly!

* I take the book I finished and created a little display in my classroom. These are a huge hit for my students. They always want to read the same books as me.


Currently, I am reading Elijah of Buxton. I had two students recommend this book. I think they chose it because it looked so big to them!
