Settlement Home sponsoring Scholastic Book Fair-March 21-25.
January 5, 2011
Scholastic Book Fair will be held at Settlement Home on March 21-25.
There is a strong connection between Book Fairs and promoting literacy. Book Fairs are unique experiences because they:
- Give all students access to quality books in every price range, interest, and reading level.
- Offer exclusive, more affordable editions of many of the most popular books sold in retail stores.
- Allow kids to preview and choose books they want to read, which elevates their motivation to read.
- Engage families in literacy activities that reinforce with students that reading really matters to the school community.
- Help your child’s school earn books and funds to improve school and classroom libraries.
Along with an extensive variety of great books, Scholastic Book Fairs offers many developmental items, such as school supplies, journals, and activity kits that encourage exploration, self-expression, creative problem-solving, and other important skills.
