Book Browse

Today, we went to the library for a book browse.  Our Librarian, Mrs. Neal, put together tables of books that were rated the Best Books of 2014.  Students spent 4 minutes at each table, previewing, and looking through books.  After looking at the books and chatting with each other, students made a wish-list of books to read in the future.

 During the book browse, many students were whispering excitedly over the materials in front of them.  Here's some of my favorites that I overheard:

  • "Ohhh, this sounds like a really good book!"
  • "Ms. Gould, this is the author of one of the other books we read for the Asian Choice unit!"
  • "Ohhhhh Chris, I think you would really like this book!"
  • "Oh, Callie, have you seen this one yet?"
  • "I already have three books on hold!"
  • "I can't wait to read this!"
Take a look at the fun we had!

 Thanks for setting this up, Mrs. Neal!  To see the list of books we looked through, check out the "Book Browse" on Mrs. Neal's website.
