December is “READ A NEW BOOK” month! – Have a “blind date with a book” day. Choose books from the school library that are appropriate for the class and wrap each book in newspaper, with a ‘personal ad’ on the outside giving the reader a hint about the material. Students could then write their own descriptions before returning them to the class library.
