Welcome to Cafe Font!
Do you have a reservation?
That's how I greeted each student when they arrived to school the other day for our Book Tasting. You see, we had just finished a Mystery Unit and my kids were resting on their mystery skills without visiting other genres. Mysteries were easy! They followed a pattern! They knew the characters! They were short! It was time to make a change. So Kelly, the quieter half of this blog, recommended Book Tasting!
I found a great resource from Head Over Heels for Teaching and began planning the books and genres while turning my classroom into a Cafe.
I was thrilled with how my room looked.

Since it was hat day (in honor of Read Across America Week) my "staff" wore chef hats for our Cafe.

This activity was a great way to get my kids to taste (and hopefully read) new books.
Have you ever held a Book Tasting session in your classroom? I'd love to hear about it!
Have a GREAT Weekend!
