I just posted a new library center in my Teachers Pay Teachers store…it’s a book review banner or pennant! You know how I love for students to share their book recommendations with each other, especially in a way that I can display all over my library!
This will be one of my first library centers of the school year, and I will leave it out for a few weeks. I have 30 different prompts on the banner pieces. Students can write or draw their responses. This allows all of the various grades and ability levels to participate.
After I’ve gathered student responses, I’ll make a banner, with triangles of scrapbook paper in between the student pages, to make a colorful banner for my library bulletin board.
I find that student peer reviews are wayyyy more powerful than my own suggestions. And sharing book recommendations really helps to build a community of readers.
I hope you find this library center helpful!
p.s.–The 28% off back-to-school sale on Teacher Pay Teachers will be on Sunday August 18-Monday, August 19. Remember to fill up your wish list before the sale for speedier shopping!
