Clip to ScrapBook #4

I teach 3rd grade too. We have a staggered start time every morning (kids allowed in class 15 minutes prior to the bell) so kids book shop at this time. Last year they had their library books and from my class library and had no problems. This year my room changed and we had use of a large shared leveled library in our commons area.

I teach my students to have a purpose as well as thinking of the level. Sometimes kids want a certain book below level to work on fluency or because it fit with research. As long as they have some on level and others for a clear purpose, I don't worry. I ask for a variety of fiction and nonfiction to be in their box. The only time I place books in is if it is for a specific assignment or a previous read class poem or even national geo magazines.
