Students in Kelly Gonzalez’s third grade class at Chatterton School in the Merrick Union Free School District stepped into a “café” on Sept. 14 and were able to “sample” reading materials during a book tasting activity.

Tablecloths and place settings were dotted around the classroom to give a restaurant feel. After devouring a few pages, students responded to their reading using their book tasting menus.

The activity allowed students to explore various genres of books.

“This year, I really wanted to make sure that students were taking home books in their book bags that they couldn’t wait to read,” Gonzalez said. “I started by reading a silly read aloud titled, ‘I Don’t Want to Read This Book’ by Max Greenfield to discuss choosing books that we actually want to and will read.”
