Sir Readalot's Castle Book Fair


This past week, the media center hosted the book fair!  This fall's Scholastic Book Fair theme is Sir Readalot's Castle.  The media center was transformed into a medieval castle.  I decorated with castle turrets, a drawbridge, pennant banners, and several chandeliers.  After setting up the books and decorations, I held a teacher preview after school.  Teachers snacked on meatballs, pita chips and carrots with hummus, and quiche.  They created wish lists of books for their students to purchase for their classroom libraries.  To boost sales, several family events were held during the book fair: two grandparent breakfasts and an All Pro Dads meeting.  We even had a knight visit the media center!  One of our parents dresses as a knight for historical reenactments.  He brought his armor and appeared on our morning news.  This was our most successful book fair yet!
