Our Reading Hits!

I created a binder for "Our Reading Hits" or book recommendations.  I printed genre posters on white card-stock from a few blogs to cover all the different ones in our standards: bethnewinghammrsrhodesscholars, dots-n-spots .  Due to limited wall space, I love the idea of putting them in a binder as a reference.
I printed out recommendation sheets from the blog: create*teach*share
I typed up a sheet of labels with names of all the genres to stick on the top of each recommendation sheet.  The book will be placed in my classroom library.

I was inspired by post on teachingwithatouchoftwang.  I bought the paper towel holder and I didn't like how my sheets hung on it...they were all flopping over.  I tried all sorts of things to fix it and came up with Plan B.  My other concern with this design was the space it would take up on my counter.

    I love the idea of the notebook! Now I am going to have to track down those cute headings...

    You should link this up with Monday Made It at 4th Grade Frolics. I'm sure people would love to see this idea!

    Thanks for the inspiration.
