How I Use It
I use this to encourage students to keep track of what they've read during the school year. I also use it to encourage student collaboration and literary discussions. Students like being able to write reviews and seeing what their friends are reading. I found that my students increased their amount of independent reading when they used this site.
It's a great way to encourage increased independent reading! I love that it promoted literary discussions in my classrooms. It's a great tool to spark student interest in books! Kids love setting goals for how many books they're going to read, and they like challenging their friends to compete for who can read the most. Very cool!
