The American Girl Tea Party!

Eighteen third grade students and two fifth grade “waiters” enjoyed a tea party in the CPS Library this week, to celebrate the wonderful historical fiction books in the “American Girl” series.   Each student read at least five books and wrote  a short review for this blog to earn their “ticket” to the tea party.  It has been great fun to see all the excitement generated during the last few months, as students became truly engaged with their reading.

Many thanks to Kirsten Meader for help with planning, making food, and craft donation and inspiration;  Julie Hart and Shanta Hoff for food assistance;  and Amy Verrill and Renee Wakefield for loaning us their teasets.

Here are some pictures of the festivities (if you  click on a picture, it will enlarge it for you).

Have you ever seen the library set up like a restaurant?
