Kevin Henkes Book Tasting

Oct. 4, 2018

First/second grade students welcomed guests for a Kevin Henkes book tasting.

Students in the first/second grade multi-age classes of Christine Bratta and Abigail Staroszczyk welcomed guests into their classroom for a book tasting.

What exactly is a book tasting? The students had been reading books by children's author Kevin Henkes and so the students dressed up like chefs and welcomed guests to their individual dinner tables where the guests sat down. The guests were allowed to enjoy a cookie while the students told them about the Henkes book of the student's choosing.

The students were tremendous hosts and presenters. Following the presentation, the guest filled out a brief questionnaire about the student's presentation and then they took a photo with the student on the student's iPad.
