We are into our second week of school....so fun learning all kinds of new procedures and guidelines! This week we are focusing on the classroom library. There are a LOT of books in our classroom....picture books, easy readers, beginning chapter books, and middle grade reads. Kids have a hard time getting books put back, so I thought I would give them a resource. First I showed them a powerpoint explaining each section of the library. We discussed as we went along. Then they each had to take a "test". They were given a book and had to return it to the library. Students who correctly returned the book were given a "license to read" and thought they were pretty fabulous. (Everyone got lots of mulligans when returning books, so we are now all licensed readers.) Maybe you would like to know how to be a licensed reader in B-7!
