We are so fortunate to have such a great library at Park Lane Elementary. With over 12,000 books in our inventory, our students have so many books to choose from! This year we decided to help them share their favorites with other students. Near our checkout desk we placed a "Book Look" bulletin board. Students that wish to can complete a short report detailing a book they have read. We suggest they tell us who their favorite character was, what they learned by reading the book, and if they would recommend it to others. If they would rather, they can draw a picture instead.
When students complete their "Book Look" we post it on the bulletin board. Also, as a "thank you" for contributing, we give them a bookmark. Right now we are using the cool bookmarks we got at our last in-service. We'll be placing an order for more bookmarks soon.
Student response to our "Book Look" wall has been favorable. It is so nice to see students enjoying their books, and sharing them with others, but even more importantly, it's great to see the "Panther Pride" on their faces when they see their work on our wall.
