Tracking books read in class

    When I was teaching Pre-K 4 (I know they're younger but maybe you might like the idea) we had a Literacy Curriculum in our school and I would also read other books in addition to the ones provided in the curriculum. Anywho, I created a cute caterpillar face and then cut a bunch of circles out of construction paper (about the size of small paper plate, the ones they use for parties to serve cake on) and as we would finish a book I would write in the name of the book and the author's name onto a circle and add it to the caterpillar's body. I put a big leaf (with a bite mark) in front of the caterpillars face to write the heading of the display on it… by the end of the school year, our caterpillar had gone all the way around the entire classroom. I made sure to create this display high on the wall, above bulletin boards and markerboards so it would be out of the way.

    Hope this idea was helpful! 🙂
