An Inexpensive Way to Get More Books for Your Classroom Library: Organize a Read-a-Thon

By Beth Newingham on March 19, 2012
  • Grades: 3–5

A great way to collect books for your classroom library is a read-a-thon. Students can collect pledges from family and friends for each book they read in a month (or a certain period of time). Students then count the books they read in class and at home.

Not only are students motivated to read lots of books, but the money raised can go to the purchasing of new books for your classroom library. The kids then get to enjoy reading the books they earned for the class.
