I scheduled this post to come out while I am on a vacation (minus Internet) so that I didn't leave my favorite people (YOU) hanging for too long. I also just realized that I have been in a pretty giving mode lately...I get all excited when I can grab something for free, and I'm hoping you do, too! So...here is another piece of free from me to you! (Yes, I do have a TPT and a Teachers Notebook store...feel free to shop around...my store links are just to your right...)
Click on the picture below to download a pdf file of Book Shopping Lists. (The document will open in Google Docs, two shopping lists per page.) I use these book shopping cards for my kids when they shop for Readers Workshop independent books out of my classroom library. I print them on card stock, put their names on the backside with a label, laminate them and use a Sharpie to write their lists. When the child's level changes, you can use a Magic Eraser to erase the Sharpie (as long as it is on the lamination and not under it!) and write in their new levels. For example, if Luke was independently reading at a level 6, I would fill out his shopping list like this:
2 books from level 4 (easy)
5 books from level 6 (just right)
1 book from level 8 (challenge)
1 Look Book
I am going to print only the bees for my class. If you want, you could print a little of each so everyone in your class had one to pick from to make them a little more personal. All clip art is from the one and only, Scrappin Doodles. Love them!!!
