Book Tasting: A Scavenger Hunt Smorgasbord
BOOK -TASTING and TEXT-TASTING: To run book-tasting or text-tasting events, you’ll need several books, short stories or articles and menu covers with task sheet inserts. Students 1) hunt for author’s craft techniques 2) get exposure to multi-genre texts, and 3) discuss why they think authors use specific formats to deliver information. Secure multiple pages with rubber bands to create handy reference booklets that students will use throughout the year. #strugglingreaders (available at TpT)
Idea to use in library. Invite classes to a "restaurant" of books. Each table has 5 or so minutes to look at a tray of books and then the tray moves to the next table. Students have a "menu" that they can check off books they would like to "order" Great idea to introduce students to new books, genres, authors, etc.
