So this weekend, I bought 10 of those clear pocket folders for binders (the sturdy plastic ones). They were in 5 in a pack for about $5.00, I think.
It only took about 8 minutes to do!
And I love that I can display some books that might not get noticed in our book baskets often.
I’m going to get some more to hang under my front whiteboard, to feature books that tie in with our current Science and Social Studies units.
I’m going to see how much these are utilized by my students…I’m thinking they’d be ideal to feature peer recommendations.
I’ll be making some signs to display above them soon (stay tuned for those!). I think something like…”if you liked this book, check out basket ___.”
We’ll see how it goes!
