It's time to READ! Encourage students to explore new genres with a book tasting activity. This project is simple to prep and always gets students checking out exciting, new titles. Use the tables signs on each of six tables or classroom areas. Spread 5-10 examples of each genre on each of the tables as labeled. Students use the 1/2 sheet tasting guide as they circulate from table to table. The tasting guide includes all the instructions they need; all you have to do is tell them when to rotate. These are quick glimpses of books so students don't get bored. If time allows, have students share titles that piqued their interest with partners or the class. This can also be introduced as Book Speed Dating with older students.
