ABCs of DCGMS Library: F is for Follett Book Fair

So many new things in the DCGMS Library this year--and today's post reminds us of one of them. Today's post is brought to you by the letter F for Follett Book Fairs.
Such a great experience all around--especially for students who had a voice in the books that were available to them at the fair. When options were sent, students voted in Literacy Studies class, and it was always surprising to see what kinds of books they were most interested in having on their fair. What a great way to get kids interested in visiting the fair with their families!

Once the fair arrived, it was an easy set-up and students could begin browsing, talking about books with one another and plotting their purchases. Students and adults both commented on the clean, streamlined, "older" appearance of the fair, and many families visited the fairs when they came to fall and spring conferences. Overall, a great experience for so many!

Our Fall 2019 and Spring 2020 Follett Book Fairs are already on the calendar--hope to see you there!
