Today Second Grade at Conestoga Elementary had their first book tasting event! Our room was transformed into a cafe complete with place-mats, table centerpieces, candles (flameless!), and . . . BOOKS!
Students learned how a Book Tasting Event took place with a short Powerpoint display and then had over 30 minutes of time to “sample” many books at their seating. Students recorded the title, genre and a mini description of why they may or may not enjoy each book. Last we sat and talked about our books over hot cocoa and cookies – cafe style. Several students even signed the books out for the holiday break to read, read, read!
Enjoy our pictures of this AMAZING event! Great job, second grade!
