Looking For a Book? – Library Display

PDF | 2 pages|Grades: 1 - 6

A classroom library display to help your students choose a book.

Motivating Students to Read

“I can’t find a book.” “I don’t know what to read.” “Nothing looks good to me.”

You know exactly what I’m talking about. Sometimes students just struggle to choose a book to read. Whether they actually can’t decide or don’t want to … well, you know your students better than I do. 😉

Use this quick and easy display to make their choice a bit easier for them. Stick a label on a small jar (bonus points if you use a fishbowl!). Fill out the fish templates with some of your favorite books for kids. Each fish gets the title of a book, the author, and the genre. When students come to you with one of those dreaded sentences from above, tell them to go fishing!
