Children's Book Week Wrap Up

Last week students at Chinook Trail Elementary celebrated National Children's Book Week with week long fun activities.

Students had their pictures made with their favorite books. Because of privacy issues, I can post them here. Parents who would like to see them may stop by the Tiger Den (Chinook's library) between now and the end of the school year.

In the meantime, some of the teachers agreed to having their photos posted.

The rest of the week was spent discussing books, trying to match teachers with their favorite books, and trying to guess how many books Mrs. Archer read from January 1st to April 30th.  Some of the answers were very amusing:

at least 105
50 to 100

Several students guessed in the 300 range and few came with in ten points of the correct answer (189 - sounds like a lot of books doesn't it? Don't forget I am an elementary librarian who reads a lot of picture books.)

We ended the week with A Come Dressed As Your Favorite Children's Book Character day on Friday.  There were some awesome costumes. Several prizes were awarded, but the best prize of all was seeing children get so excited about books.
