This is a great way to introduce new books to your kids and get them excited about reading them!
Once the books that I’ve ordered come in around November/December, I start getting ready for my Book Tasting Event! I place books around the library on tables, and allow students their entire library time to go explore new books. I hand them a bookmark or booklet so that they can write down titles of new books that they would like to read in the new year. I teach them to also write down the call number so that they can find the book quickly when they want to check it out.
Here's what's included:
*Bookmarks for 3rd - 5th graders for 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, and 2022.
*Booklet for Kinder - 2nd graders
*Posters to put on tables for the main library sections: Everybody/Easy, Non-Fiction, Biography, Graphic Novels, Fiction, and Holiday
*Posters for the chapter book genres: Adventure, Fantasy, Historical Fiction, Humor, Mystery, Scary, Science Fiction, Sports, and Realistic Fiction.
