You must love your job when you smile this big! A special thanks to SLMC Shanna Leonard for this blog post about their book fair. Great job, Shanna and the "Wild West" crew, for all you do to get students (and teachers) excited about reading!
We are saddled up to read a good book this week during our Wild West Book Fair. With the help of my assistant, Dru Davis, we created a Wild West theme in our media center. We treated our staff to a special preview party that included cowboy snacks providing an opportunity for them to complete teacher wishlists.
Decorations: Covered wagon, cowboy campfire, hay bales, saddles, hats, and western music.
Dress: We dressed as cowgirls wearing boots, jeans, hats, belt buckles, and bandanas.
Happy Trails to you trail mix (trail mix)
Cowboy Beans (jelly beans)
Cow Patties (fudge rounds)
Hay (stick pretzels)
Watering Hole (bottled water and sodas)
Cactus Juice (green punch)
Classroom teachers were given their One Book One School copy of We’re All Wonders during the preview party. Teachers were directed to read the book first and then send it home with one student each night until all students are able to take the book home to share with their family. After reading the book, students were also asked to sign the inside cover of the book so we can remember the students who took part in the We’re All Wonders One Book One School initiative.
Our 3rd Annual Book Character Pumpkin contest entries are being displayed for parents to see when visiting the book fair. Grade level book character winners were awarded with a gift certificate to the book fair.
