How I Use It
I use it during my reading block as a way for students to log their reading minutes and keep track of books that they read. The students love the social aspect in particular because they can 'talk' to their friends online by recommending good reads to them!
My Take
I use this site everyday in my classroom as a way to build our classroom reading community. Students love using the site because they can add books to our classroom challenge as well as recommend a favorite to someone in our class. I love that it gets them talking to one another about books and helps them meet goals together as a classroom team.
