Classroom reading displays are a great way to get kids excited about books. They provide a creative visual reinforcement and can help students explore new content. These are some of my favorite classroom reading displays.

Book Selfies

I love this personalized way of showing off class books. This could make for a great virtual poster. Or use a polaroid camera and students update their current reads. Either way, it’s a great way to get kids sharing their reads! Credit: Mrs. Orman’s Classroom.

Mystery Book Challenge

I can’t think of a better way to get kids picking up titles they otherwise may have missed! The idea here is to cover the books and only provide some key themes. This will allow students to choose a book they may have overlooked, based on the cover alone. It also adds a little fun to your reading routine. See Alexandria for more.

Battle of the Books

I love this idea by Smocus, Smocus! A book battle has a class reading two books, and then voting on which one was better. Repeat the process until finalists are determined. This is a great way to get kids involved in analyzing texts and discussing their opinions!

Emoji Reads

Want to check in with students about how a book made them feel? Try out this Emoji Reads display over on We Are Teachers. Students can discuss details about stories and why they triggered certain feelings. It can also get them making schema connections to texts. Another way to try this strategy out is by having students record their emoji’s in reading logs. It’s a great way to get students to connect with their reading!
