This week I was amazed to see how long it took the students to sign out books using index cards. The students filled out cards with a book title and the date then filed them alphabetically into a file box. The process seemed to take forever. Immediately I thought why not use Google Sheets on more than one computer to speed up the task?
The classroom book sign out sheet saves time for the teacher as well! It is easier to click through the sheets versus thumbing through a stack of index cards. This is an easier process to help keep the teacher updated with what the students are reading. It also makes keeping track of classroom books a little bit easier due to the information being right at the “Tip of one’s fingers!”
The below video shows how the Google Sheets Classroom Book Sign Out works.
