4 of these book display holder things were empty.
This rotating rack, which holds a lot of non-fiction readers, is usually completely full.
This rack is almost empty.
Don't you just love the excitement the kiddies show when you bring in new books?! Even when I taught Year 6, whenever I brought in new books they were always taken (I had to keep a waiting list!). These kids are no different.
But.... I didn't even bring in new books :( Once again, I just moved some books around, changed the books in the racks and in holders and you'd think Christmas had come. I love pulling out books that don't seem as popular and putting them on display or doing a book introduction by reading the blurb, or doing a picture walk, or reading the first page or two. There's a lot more interest in them for sure after that.
How do you maintain interest in your books when you haven't added new ones for a little while? Do you put all of your books out at the start of the year or progressively add more/take some out as the year goes on? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
