Book in a day. This reminds me of something my mom used before we went to school (and when we did our three years of homeschool). This is a great idea to get kids to retain morals of stories and to excite them about reading! Check out the blog this is from as well...super neat.

This poster would be great to teach students about summarizing, as the NYS ELA Common core standards indicate : 4.RL.2 and 5.RL.2 asks students to summarize a text they have read. This poster can be a reference tool when students start summary writing.
Let the kids review books for each other. This two in one worksheet allows students to "review" the books for one another. Print on colored paper and hang the reviews around the book shelves, so other students can make "informed decisions" about what they want to read.
