A quick cartoon hello from Monica
Looking for a great set of books to read to students? Here is a list of a few favorites to share with your class:
Students can use Book Creator to capture reading every day in a journal format.
As students read each day they can use Book Creator to capture their thoughts, ideas and inspirations.
A daily reading journal gives students a space to respond to reading using teacher prompts or free writing.
A daily journal can include a few key features within each day’s entry. You might ask students to include:
Book title Date Pages read

Each day students can add a new page to their ebook to chronicle their reading over the course of the school year. The prompts you give students may change, just like your expectations for their reading responses will evolve over the course of the school year.
