Our theme for our classroom this year is, "Reading gives us some place to go when we have to stay where we are." My plan is to fill my students up with books. Students often have trouble choosing "What's Next?" when reading. This is a fun recommendation system I am implementing based on the Netflix app. The best part is, this project is in a central location so it will benefit every child in our school! I created a bulletin board, using lots of research and reading titled "Bookflix". I polled teachers in previous grades for books their students love and books they read together. We tried to incorporate both fiction and non-fiction, diverse characters, and a mix of classics and new titles. After reading many books and doing research of my own. I chose our starter books and gave recommendations to match. For example, just in the same way Netflix has a headline on the home screen that states, "Because you watched Parks and Rec" above TV shows that are similar to Parks and Rec, our bulletin board does the same for books. The way it looks for us might be a picture of the cover of "Because you read Captain Underpants". Under that, are cover pictures for E lDeafo, The Notebooks of Doom, The 13-Storey Treehouse, IFunny, and Flora & Ulysses. These are books that have similar writing style, characters, genre, etc. to the Captain Underpants Series, which is beloved by many students, especially reluctant readers. I plan to change it regularly based on my reading conferences with my students, when I see the majority of them reading. This can be converted virtually easily by using Google Slides rather than a bulletin board and using a check out system for bringing the books home.
