It's Moday Made It time and I've once again linked up with Tara from 4th Grade Frolics! I feel like I have been nonstop crafting and it is taking over my house. Thankfully this linky party is making me finish these projects instead of just jumping around. This week's creation is my Book Recommendation Carousel.
I found this great idea on Pinterest (where would we be without it?) and wanted to recreate it but for student's book recommendations. Last year I had a sports theme and I made a baseball bat poster that said "Sure Hits" and students wrote down books that they thought were amazing. It was great up until it was so full you couldn't read any of the books anymore. This year I wanted to break it up by genre since they will be doing the 30 book challenge from the Book Whisperer.
The genre posters are from Beth Newingham but I did recreate some of them so the books were more on the 5th grade level (she teaches third). The book recommendation sheet I created on Word and put it on top of fancy paper from JoAnn's. Slide it into a sheet protector and place them in the binder rings. Close the binder rings around the paper towel holder and you're done! This could be used for a number of things, including showing off student's work! If you have any more ideas for the carousel I would LOVE to hear them!
