10 Reasons to Consider myBookCorner for your Classroom
Every teacher loves to get their students reading. MyBookCorner is an easy way to help!
Getting started and more
1. Helps spur your students to do more personal reading.
You know how important reading is for your students. You also know they should do more. MyBookCorner is a fun extra incentive to promote voluntary reading.
2. Start an online Book Club in your classroom.
Create a classroom "reading community" where students' reading is shared and recognized. It's not easy to share and celebrate at-home reading - often you don't even know about it. MyBookCorner helps change this situation for the better.
3. Each student has a personalized online book log
Kids actually enjoy recording what they've read and seeing it online. Students enter the title, author, pages read and more for their books - and since it's on the Web they can do it anytime, anywhere!
4. Kids enjoy seeing what classmates have been reading.
Students' personalized version of myBookCorner lets them "visit" the "book corners" of classmates. They can see at a glance what their friends have read. Newest classmates entering books are highlighted for them.
5. Have fun classroom reading competitions.
A "scoreboard" shows who's read the most pages for the class this month. Students love to compete to be the "Reader of the Month". And everyone that's reading is a winner!
6. Students learn computer and Internet skills in the name of reading.
Using myBookCorner helps kids learn computer and Internet fundamentals in a safe environment. Likewise, reading is "spiced up" by the computer angle - a win/win!
7. Great writing practice too...
Kids can write their own mini-review and be a book critic by giving their books an A-F grade. It's good writing practice and it's fun to read other's reviews.
8. Let it do all the boring data entry and statistics.
Voluntary reading can be kept track of easily, by myBookCorner. You have students enter the books they've read, and myBookCorner does the rest.
9. Student information is private.
Students create their own usernames and passwords. Their information can only be seen by themselves and their classmates.
