Book Check-Out Station (Free Pocket Chart Cards)

Are your books disappearing?  There's nothing I love more than seeing kids get excited about books and want to take them home to borrow!  But, I can't help but notice that not keeping track of the books I send home with my students is starting to take a toll on my class library selection.  :)  I'm going to try the check-out system that Christina Bainbridge mentioned she uses in her classroom and see if that helps keep better track of which books are and aren't making it back into the classroom.  Students will record the title of the book they are borrowing on a slip of paper and place it behind their classroom numbers on a pocket chart.  My pocket chart cards are below (designed to best fit the small, $1 charts at Target).  Click any image to download {free}!
