Does anyone's school or class celebrate Children's Book Week? It is next week and I would like some simple ideas on ways I can celebrate it with my class.

We celebrate this some years. Our school has a book character day during that week. The children get to choose a favorite book character and dress up like him/her. It is a lot of fun. The teachers on our team got together last year and dressed up like the "Three Little Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf." It was a hoot!

We celebrate something each day much like homecomming.

Books are groovey (dress in tie dye or hippies)
Sock it to a good book (wear funny socks)
We "can" read (bring canned goods for our food pantry)
Bring a friend to read (stuffed animal)
Keep your paws on a book (wear our mascot, panther, clothing)

We also have celebratity readers. They are high school football, basketball players, cheerleaders, ROTC, community leaders, and others come in and read to our students!

Each morning on our school's in-house television program a different teacher is going to tell about his/her favorite childhood books. We hope this will encourage students to read some of the books mentioned, especially if it is their current or former teacher being featured.

Book exchange

One thing our school is doing is a book exchange. Our wonderful librararian is coordinating everything. Students can bring in up to 3 books - either chapter books or picture books.

They then get one book buck per book they brought in to "buy" other books. The books had to be gently used and they recv'd 1 picture book buck for each picture book brought in, and the 1 chapter book buck for each chapter book. That way, they didn't bring in 3 picture books and get 3 chapter books. My kids are so excited.

Even though this is an all-school event, it could easily be adapted just for your classroom or grade level.
