Get your students excited about reading with this interactive bulletin board display!
❤️ 📚 Encourage a Love of Reading
This bulletin board idea will encourage students to read a book a day! The monster-themed classroom or hallway bulletin board set includes everything you need for this classroom theme or to add some monstrously good fun to your Halloween-time literacy lessons.
Challenge your students to read a book each day. After they have read a book, let them draw a picture of the cover on the template and rate the book out of 5 stars! Attach all of the book reviews to the bulletin board for everyone to see all of the reading your students are doing!

This teaching resource includes:
- A Book a Day Keeps the Monsters Away (letter set)
- 4 “Today I read…” book review templates
- monsters and book cutouts (for decoration).
Print a handful of the book review templates on paper and cut them out. Leave them in an accessible place so students can grab one when they need it.
Print all of the bulletin board pieces on cardstock for added durability and longevity. After you are finished with the bulletin board, you can place all pieces in a folder or large envelope for easy access and re-use next school year.
To personalize the bulletin board or door display for your students, let them each choose a monster to write their name on with a permanent marker. Attach each student’s monster to a clothespin and attach them to the bulletin board. Each time a student has read a book and filled out a review, they can go clip their review to their monster! Even your reluctant readers will be reading up a storm!
