Book Tasting

The fourth and fifth grade students were excited and engaged as they enjoyed our first LCA “Book Tasting.” This fun and creative opportunity was planned by Mrs. Jenny Van Der Meer, the Lower School media specialist, and it took place during the week of August 21–24.

The students explored or “tasted” several fiction novels from the Lower School Media Center. They wet their appetites for reading by previewing many books and recording information about the books in their personal menu. Students will use their menu to locate and check out books.

The “Book Tasting” provided a unique opportunity to review how to pick out good-fit books, find books of interest, and dig into literature they would normally overlook. Everyone left full of enthusiasm for reading!
