Book Wish List

Free on Plus | 1 page (PDF)|Grades: 1 - 5

A book wish list for students to compile over time.

Students record the title and author of books which sound appealing to them.

Use this teaching resource in the classroom to motivate students with their reading. The wish list could be used in conjunction with book recommendation chats or displays.

Having a list of books which the student has a strong desire to read is an asset when promoting free-choice reading.

When visiting libraries the wish lists could be taken to assist with book selection.

This wish list is perfect to use in conjunction with other resources related to fostering a love of reading such as the Reading Preferences Survey or our Talking About Books Prompts.
