Book Tasting in Room 102!
Today, all students in Room 102 were invited to La Frame Bistro for the Grand Opening and first book tasting of the year!
“If you don’t like to read, you haven’t found the right book.”
This J.K. Rowling quote fits perfectly with this activity. It was my mission today, and all other days, to help these third graders find books they love and grow their excitement towards reading. The students arrived after lunch/recess to the classroom transformed into a fine-dining experience and “Chef Frame” at the door taking reservations. It was a gigantic success and a great way to sample or get a “taste” of lots of different books. The kids were told to be risk-takers and stay open-minded when choosing a book. During the book tasting, they jotted notes and filled their “menus” with a list of books they can’t wait to read. No more, "I don't have a good book to read!" excuses in this classroom!
