It is too easy to lose the books at home & then we have to deal with looking for them(amongst our large collection) & possibly having to pay for the book at the end of the year.
I student taught at a school with a lot of students from low income, homeless, and refugee families and they were not allowed to take home books until second or third grade. Even then it depended on their teacher. The school library had hardly anything in it and they tended to lose a lot of books because their student population changed all the time. My dd attended a school where the population stayed the same, but her teacher encouraged the kids to keep their books in their desks so they could read them when they had no other work to do (like a reading bribe).
Apparently doing it rong and ruining it for everyone, but I don't give a crap anymore.
|It does help to make a habit of keeping borrowed books in one place. We have a shelf for borrowed books - whether from the public library, school library or friends. Anytime the borrowed book isn't being read, that's where it goes. Otherwise, it will disappear into our shelves and won't be seen again for a very long time!|
