Scholastic's Book Fair theme this fall was: Oasis: A Cool Place to Discover Hot Books. We held a Family Reading Night along with our book fair. Our activities were Egyptian themed.
Visit the book fair.
Make A Necklace Cartouche- Necklaces were made out of the Egyptian alphabet, yarn and a cartouche cut out of construction paper.
Read With Your Mummy-Read and take an AR test with your "mummy" or daddy on an Egyptian rug (const. paper).
Photo Booth- Egyptian photo props and a green screen (const. paper) to have a photo booth for family and friends. This was lots of fun.
Archaeological Dig-Students dug in buckets of colored rice to locate the letters to spell their name. There were also lots of buried treasures to discover.
The check list gives parents and students a helpful reminder of all the activities going on. The students received a ticket at every activity they attended for a drawing for a book from the book fair.
