In an earlier post, you mentioned having your students collect enough books in their book boxes for about 2 weeks to avoid their reading time being used just for selecting book. I'm a 3rd grade teacher with weak readers who are almost all still in picture books or very easy early chapter books despite it being January already. Any suggestions on what I could do for my students' book boxes? I foresee them taking a very large amount of books to sustain them over even a week's worth of reading time and though I have around 800 books, selection might become problematic. Also, what kind of boxes do they use? I'm worried that they wouldn't be large enough to accomodate their picture books.
