Books We Love: How I Promote a Community of Readers in My Classroom



Now that we are a few weeks into the new school year and I can finally almost catch my breath (Ha!), I wanted to share one of my new favorite things about my classroom year after year.

I have set up this display in two classrooms now. It is super easy and is interactive for students.



I wish I had time in my schedule for students to regularly share what books they have been loving, but sadly I don’t. Therefore, I created this ‘Books We Love’ board!

Here’s how it works:

1. Once students have read a book they LOVED, they get a blank book spine.





2. They decorate their book spines with the Title and Author. I also like them to add the Call Number if it is from our school library or the Tape Design if it’s from our class library. (You can read about how I manage my classroom library by clicking here!)





3. I post it to our bulletin board. Now students can look to the ‘Books We Love’ board when they are looking for a good book to read!





Distance Learning Option: Have your students fill out a google form of a book they love. Use the results to create a class list of recommended books!

How do you encourage your students to share their favorite books? What works for you? Comment below so we can connect!
