This is a fun keepsake to help students and teachers remember their class from a specific school year. It could also be used as a back to school activity to generate a reading list of recommended books for the start of the school year. Teachers survey the students for their favorite book title and author from the year. This is also a project your class room parent can handle by sending a Group Email to all of the parents asking them to send one of their child’s favorite book names from the year.
Once all of the book titles are collected, create a list of the student names with their book selections in a Word document (landscape orientation, 3 column set-up). You can also insert a class picture if you have any spare white space. Your list should not exceed two columns in the Word document. After printing, cut the lists into two strips and paste them onto 9×4 inch construction paper strips (front and back). Then, run the assembled bookmark through the laminating machine.
Make enough copies for all the students and the teachers!
Teacher Tip: picture book titles appear in quotes, chapter book titles are underlined. Alternately, all titles could appear in italics.
