Book Tasting: A Scavenger Hunt Smorgasbord

BOOK -TASTING and TEXT-TASTING: To run book-tasting or text-tasting events, you’ll need several books, short stories or articles and menu covers with task sheet inserts. Students 1) hunt for author’s craft techniques 2) get exposure to multi-genre texts, and 3) discuss why they think authors use specific formats to deliver information. Secure multiple pages with rubber bands to create handy reference booklets that students will use throughout the year. #strugglingreaders (available at TpT)

USING KAHOOT TO HOST A BOOK TOURNAMENT

Inspired by the Brown Bag Teacher and her blogpost, we held a Book Tournament this year in my classroom. It coincided with the PARCC test and ended up being the perfect activity to do when we were finished the test. Set up your brackets The first thing we did was pick our 'Sweet 16.' I had students each write their top 5 books read this year. They also had to write their favorite chapter book and picture book read aloud and basal story. From their lists, I narrowed it down to 16 books - a…

Biography Bowling

Looking for a fun way to promote the biography section of your library? Why not try... This is an activity I try to do every other year or so to teach the arrangement of books in this section, but I am waaayyyyyyy behind in introducing biographies to my students this year (the pictures are from a few years ago). Normally we do Biography Bowling in February, somewhere between the birthdays of Abe and George, but that just didn't happen this year. No worries, though--we can still bowl in…

Whimsy Workshop Teaching

Assessment can be difficult for both teachers and students, depending on how it’s done. Here’s a super simple little trick for assessment that I call Hop Across the Pond.

Idea to use in library. Invite classes to a "restaurant" of books. Each table has 5 or so minutes to look at a tray of books and then the tray moves to the next table. Students have a "menu" that they can check off books they would like to "order" Great idea to introduce students to new books, genres, authors, etc.
