Book Boxes: For the Home



Many of us use book boxes in class. Whether you rock the Ikea magazine holders or some other box for the purpose of holding books......... but I want to talk about book boxes for the home.

We make so many fabulous {if I do say so myself} books in class all year. I send these home and say, "Please read these to your family at home." And then I just cross my fingers that they do.

And not promising the home book box completely solves the problem, but it is a way to help families organize and make reading a priority.

At the beginning of the year I ask the kiddos to make a book box with their family. The note which you can see here {and just click on the letter to download if for yourself!}
asks them to use a box no smaller than a shoe box and as large as they like....but the kid must be able to carry it on their own. I really can't be carrying 27 boxes all on my own :)

I tell them to be creative.... include your favorite characters....or your favorite colors and just have fun with it. At the end of the month the kids bring the boxes to school and we have a "Book Box Parade" around the school.

We pop into a few classrooms of older students, we zoom by the office and the principal and just make sure everyone is super proud of their special box. And of course we all take pictures...I mean we want to make this box the BEST thing ever!

The boxes head back home with the instruction to put the box somewhere accessible to your child and use it to collect all the books your child makes in the classroom. So as they come home with little readers such as color books or whatever it may be...they have one place to put it all. And the best part is that these are ALL books {we hope} that they can read.
