We just recently had a huge reading party at our school. Every May we have a chocolate fountain as part of the festivities! The kids really enjoy that part! I don’t know if it is all that warm, gooey goodness cascading down or getting to dip all kinds of treats into that melted chocolate! This year, our librarian decided to try something a little different. Instead of the fountain, she used a fondue pot. Same warm, gooey, goodness. And still so very, very yummy!!
The students got to choose from sliced bananas, strawberries, marshmallows, pretzels, Rice Krispie treats, and graham crackers to dip into the chocolate. My favorites were the bananas and strawberries!!
Students rotated between 3 rooms for 20 minutes at each station. This way they get to have a fun party, but only be out of class and instruction time for an hour.
Besides the chocolate fountain room, we also had a Bingo room. In this room, students played Bingo and got a choice of prizes for winning.
Students could choose a brand new book from a basket of books.
The reading party was a huge success and we all had fun! It was a great way to celebrate the enjoyment of reading!
