It is my Read Aloud Spotlight board!
Wonder by RJ Palacio) showcased under a "spotlight". I then have the cover of the book stapled up and a little area designated for our current chapter and some thoughts. Each day, I wipe off the vis-a-vie marker and write the latest chapter. I then have one student volunteer write their thoughts on the book so far. The kids really enjoy this part. I find that they are listening *extra* hard just so they have something valuable to write on the sticky note! (not that they didn't listen before, but now they have an added purpose.)
Below all of that, I have a little book spine clip art with the title of the book. When our read aloud is done, I tape that little book spine onto our "Read Aloud Bookshelf" that I put on the window right next to this board in our library.
I love how this is making our read aloud, which is already the most looked forward to time of day, even more special. What do you do to make your read aloud a stand-out in your room?
