    Mrs. Lodge's Library: Adopt a Shelf

    Great Idea! Sammy the Shelfmarker-video to help teach kids how to use school library

    Shelf care for kids

    Order in the Library, an online shelving game. Perfect for a library center or for training a parent volunteer to shelf books.

    What a great idea to promote reading! Shelf talkers. Students use an index card to write an advertisement about a book. Tape it to the shelf below the book!! My students would LOVE this!

    Speed reading. Books were pulled from different shelves in the library for students to speed read (5-10 minutes). At the end of 5-10 minutes, students place the book face down and pass it to the right. The next student picks up the book at the signal and reads it. Process repeats until 10 minutes before class is over. In the last 10 minutes, students can share their favorite books. Great way to get students interested in books that they wouldn't normally choose.
