Book Lovers Bash

We just wrapped up our first unit of Reader's Workshop!
I am so proud of the work that my students did during this unit... and love how much they already enjoy books and reading!

To celebrate their hard work we had a Book Lovers Bash.

First, we helped chose dance moves for Elephant and Piggie's Dance Party:

Then we had our own (super fun!) dance party:

Finally, we curled up with our pillows, stuffed animals, and favorite books and read...

  1. Sounds like so much fun! I'm looking for more ideas like this to do with my kiddos. Thanks for sharing.


  2. This looks like so much fun! I bet your students had a blast. You do a really nice job of celebrating your students' growth. I have loved all of the writing celebrations you've shared and this reading bash is adorable.

  3. I love the video. I was happy that Maddie had the same Pillow Pet as me! I liked dancing too. Love, tommy

  4. I love the dance party idea. I am a college student and future teacher, and my Children's Lit Professor would say that this dance party would help the student make a text-to-self connection. I love they they worked on dance moves for the characters and then showed off their own dance moves. This sounds like a lot of fun and great reward for doing so well in their reading. I like the contrast, that they did well a their reading (a typically quiet and still activity) and were rewarded with a very active activity. Great idea and it loks like they had a lot of fun! = )

  5. I have been following your blog since past so many days.. I really appreciate you sharing your knowledge with us..
