Creating Reading Magic has never been easier! Custom Reading Lists provide ways to:
Encourage Student Choice
Create booklists by subject or genre and use the audio/video resources to help students find titles they will enjoy.
- Search or Browse and filter down to the titles and resource types you want.
- Add multiple titles to a reading list.
- Save the link to iPad stations or share with students directly!
Track Your Collections with Booklist Annotations
Create booklists according to your collections and use the annotation fields under each title to track:
- Number of copies
- Who is reading what titles
- Specific resources to expand each reader’s connections to books and authors
Keep Reading Alive Throughout the School
Create syllabi booklists that encourage students to explore additional resources and hear directly from authors and illustrators.
- Biography unit? What does the author say about writing biographies?
- Solar Systems study? What book trailers might get students excited?
Plug in your book displays
Use QR codes to create “digital book jackets” or ready-to-go booktalks — Take students instantly to a book or author resource!
- Author Name Pronunciations are great ways to enhance displays for author studies.
- Activities, Book Guides, and Lessons can give students autonomy in afterschool hours.
