Arrgh you ready for the Fall 2016 Book Fair? Take the leap this fall with our featured theme for elementary schools: Bookaneer Book Fair: Where books are the treasure! Get your staff, students, and their parents excited about reading with swashbuckling new titles from Scholastic and other popular publishers.
Take off on a daring journey into open books! Build a pirate ship as part of your Book Fair décor and adorn your entrance with treasure map markings, including a large “X” marks the spot.
To get more kids on board and into the Fair, plan adventurous activities like an in-school treasure hunt or a gold coin guessing game. Be sure to celebrate National Talk Like a Pirate Day as a school and study the life of pirates as part of your class curriculum. Then, invite faculty and students to dress like a pirate for a day, and encourage everyone to donate loose change to an All for Books™ treasure chest.
Since Book Fairs are about bringing together families and the community, make sure to map out several fun events that parents wouldn’t dare miss! Enlist student book lubbers as part of your Junior Crew to help raise Book Fair excitement—they make first-rate first mates. And don’t forget the Grands! Host a special event just for the extended family members of students, including grandparents, aunts, uncles, and devoted caregivers.
