We’re nearing the end of October, and that can only mean one thing…it’s about time for the fall book fair. Junior Crew members–two or three student helpers from each classroom–have already been chosen and are hard at work preparing booktalk videos. The book fair will take place during conferences from November 6-7. Students will also have the chance to buy books during their regularly scheduled library time. Here are some things to look out for this year:
Reading Ticket Raffle – Leading up to the book fair, teachers will give out reading tickets to students they see displaying exemplary reading habits and strategies. Students can turn their tickets into the raffle box in the library, and I will give away prizes the week of the book fair. Prizes may include book and boomarks.
All For Books – As is tradition, we are collecting spare change for the All For Books collection drive. There is a collection box in the library, as well as collection jars in each classroom. The money raised will be used to buy books for classroom libraries.
Classroom Wish List – Parents and students also have the opportunity to support classroom libraries by purchasing books off a Teacher Wishlist. Teachers will be able to fill out their wishlists during the Teacher Sneak Peak on November 1st.
Online Fair – Not able to get down to the fair during conferences? Or maybe you just want to buy more books? Visit our online fair any time from October 26 to November 15.
Junior Crew will be helping out during the fair, so if you see a student with a nametag, don’t be afraid to ask questions.
We hope to see you there!
