Are you already a fan of Kid President? Now you’ll love him even more!
Now that’s a plan librarians can get behind–gift someone your favorite book! Share great ideas with your friends, family, and your students by sharing books!
Have you ever done a “Read It Forward” in your school? Here’s how it typically works.
1) You buy lots of copies of a book that many students will like. (Maybe a paperback from the book fair?)
2) Put the books in random places around your school, outside of the library.
3) Whoever finds one reads it, then passes it along to someone else.
4) You may choose to have students sign and date the book, and sign their names in a binder or bulletin board to track participation.
I found a book about the Read It Forward program on Amazon, but I haven’t read it yet. I’m adding it to my wish list!
And I found some information from Round Rock ISD about how they implement a #bookitforward (or Read It Forward) program.
I haven’t tried this before. Have you? I’d love to hear about your experiences in a comment!
