PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

REVISED - I use this during the week of Dr. Seuss's birthday. It encourages the kids to bring in some of their favorite books to share while also exploring some of their peers' favorite books!

I have included the Microsoft Word version online so that you may edit the invitation according to your class.


Your download includes:
- Book tasting party invitation
- "Get a little taste of a great book" sheet - Students will fill out prior to the book tasting party giving information about their favorite book.
- 3 book tasting sheets (enough for 25 different "tastes" of a book)
- Taste tester feedback sheet, reviewing the activity and their top three books.
- 2 pages of directions as to how I used it in my classroom

** ALL CAN BE ADAPTED TO FIT YOUR NEEDS IN YOUR MICROSOFT WORD DOWNLOAD!

* Thank you Tracee Orman for the great border!

I LOVE this!!! I already do a monthly reading program that allows kids to read and explore books of different genres. Now, I have a very tasty incentive to add to the mix at the end of every month when the kids are choosing a new book!!!
On  December 4, 2012Kim Pawlyk  answered:
Yay! So glad you will be able to use it with your kids!

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I added a "menu" board (aka think-tac-toe) for my friends to complete for classwork and assigned the book report for homework. My class has been working diligently on the project for almost 2 weeks now. I can't wait for our sharing party tomorrow!

What a fun idea! I'm looking forward to using this toward the end of the school year to (hopefully) motivate my students to read more over the summer.
On  April 29, 2012Kim Pawlyk  answered:
Thank you! I found that the more you "snazz" it up (balloons, music, table cloths, snacks, etc...) the more the kids get into it! Hope you enjoy it! :)

Great activity! It's a great way to get kids to write a sort of book report. Can't wait to start!

Thank you! The kids LOVE it! It can be used/adapted in any grade level! A great way to celebrate "Read Across America" without tons of Dr. Seuss activities....or just to have a special activity!

Product Questions & Answers

n/a
On  April 29, 2012,  Erin M. asked:
The book tasting party looks great and I think I will do it with my Grade 2 students in June. I am wondering if it is possible to be able to edit the invitation though. I have four desk groupings of 5 students and only 20 students in my class. The other thing I was wondering is how long does this take and would you have your grade 2s fill out the page where they write the title down of every book and how they feel about it? I guess I am wondering how you organized this. Did you post the different "book summaries" around the room on the wall and the kids went around and read them? How did you accomodate for the children who still struggle with reading?
