Miss Evan's 5th Grade Holds "Genre Tasting"
When students returned from related arts, they walked into "Book Café." Students were excited to see the classroom transformed into a burger joint. On each group’s table was a tray of books, a menu of different genres, and a list where they would fill in observations and make a book selection. As a timer sounded, students rotated to another table and tasted more books. Students were excited about the opportunity to taste a variety of books, but sad they couldn’t taste each genre. Just like we can't taste everything on the menu the first time we visit a restaurant, students couldn’t taste every genre the first time completing this activity. Students will continue to taste books once a week until all genres have been sampled.
