Book Boxes to Promote Summer Reading
- Grades: 3–5
If you are like me, you have permanent book boxes in your classroom that students reuse each year for reading workshop. Students grow attached to their book boxes, and it becomes second nature for them to regularly fill their boxes with favorite books, to read books and record them in their reading logs, and to then exchange the books for new ones from the classroom library. My teaching partner and I think that having their own book boxes at home is the best way to make the school-to-home reading transition over the summer successful.
