I have a classroom library filled with books for my students to read. I have a system of checking out and in. Well, each year books seem to disappear. Lastweek, I started having my students come to me to check out a book with a limit of 2 out at a time. I have two index box sets. The boxes are alphabetized by authors’ last names. Box one (pink) = cards with books on the shelf. Box two (orange) = cards with books that are checked out. Students sign the back of the card and I place it in the appropriate box.
Do you have a way that you have your students check out books? I would love to hear about it. What do you do if a child loses your book?
