Why do some students wander around during free reading time? Do you have one of those students? He flips through the tubs of books but can't ever find something that he wants to read. Seeing all of these tubs of books in many classroom libraries can be overwhelming for some students. How can you help these students use their reading time more effectively?
- Bookshelf should be small. It is better if it shows front cover like the one in the picture.
- Rotate books on this bookshelf frequently - at least twice a month.
- Have a wide selection of books: fiction, non-fiction, grade level above and below.
