Sharing successful reading strategies to get sports fans reading

November 7th, 2013 by Kendra Martin

In a recent email newsletter, we asked teachers and librarians how they get their sports fans to pick up a book and read. Here are some of your great responses!

Angi, Baton Rouge:

We had WNBA great Lisa Leslie visit our school. I had her sign our women's basketball books and then put them on display in the front of the Library. It's a great hook for boys & girls alike. In no time, I have a crowd at both of my sports shelves, then the checkout desk.

Diana, Canada:

When I give a book talk to a class, I talk about non fiction titles in the collection and pair them with fiction titles featuring the same sport. HiLo books from publishers like Lorimer are presented as "quick reads" that grab readers and reluctant readers alike.

Thanks for your feedback! These suggestions are great tips for engaging your reluctant readers!

At Lorimer, we recognize that your students deal with tough issues every day. That's why we've developed resources that reflect contemporary concerns. Our Deal With It series provides kids with the classroom-tested tools they need to think for themselves and deal with today's most important issues.

NEW! Teacher resource guides to accompany Gangs: Deal with it before push comes to shove and Gaming: Deal with it before it outplays you.

Download the FREE guides here.

PLUS, check out the newest book in the series, Homophobia: Deal with it and turn prejudice into pride, a starred CCBC Best Books for Kids & Teens selection.

“It is the visual format and illustrations that make this series so appealing and kid friendly. The information, straight-forward talk and behavior-challenging questions are well done, but the art will surely make youth pick up these books.”
