Free for All FRIDAY! Hooked on Books!

I can't wait to start my hooked on books bulletin board.  The kids will have a fish with their name tag and a thick thumb tack underneath to hang a ring clip.  As students check out books weekly they will complete these bookmarks to enter for drawings.  As students get more and more recommendations, they can also earn extra points for recommending books to read.  This should create a nice display for the year.  Near the end of the year, students will see just how many books they have been reading.  I also have other reading incentives to post soon. 

Another Tara ORIGINAL!  I'm only saying that because I think it's totally funny how many teachers think many of the things they came up with were their OWN original IDEA.  There are some fantastic ideas out there and some are really unique.  I'm just saying that when I see a million ideas with this or that and another teacher gets mad because it was their IDEA!  HA!  SO with all that said, maybe this is original, maybe not, I can't directly think of a source that I have ever seen like this.....BUT, I will not be so bold to say no one has ever made anything like this either.  Either way I hope you enjoy.

I'm totally complimented when people like, tweak, or borrow ideas I've used in the classroom.  I can't say honestly any idea is totally mine, because actually, someone or something has inspired me to tweak it for ME!

So for all you tweakers out there.  Feel free to make this into something that works for you.
Happy Hurricane Irene to you all staying dry.  ~Tara

PPS!!!!  I hate technology!  Google Docs can kiss my big toe!  If you want this please leave me a message and I will email the document to you.  I really am trying to figure out all this new techno stuff, I will get there someday.
