Students Participate in Book Tasting Event During Read-On-Missouri-Week

STE. GENEVIEVE—During Read-On Missouri Week, students in Mrs. Angie Viox’s second grade class enjoyed a classroom book tasting!

A book tasting is an event during which students “taste,” or sample, a selection of books chosen ahead of time.

Students then rotate among tables to sample the books and record notes about the ones that interest them.

The theme of this event was a cafe, where students created their own chef hats, and then visited tables that were decorated as tables in a restaurant.

It is important to expose students to different literary genres, authors, and titles. Book tasting events are a great way for students to sample books they may not otherwise come across!

This event is also a fun reading activity that gets kids excited about reading!
