Books to Eat 2016

on April 27, 2016

With over 150 Books to Eat entries in 2015, we are gearing up for an exciting month of May with four opportunities to contribute to our festivities. For the first time we are having a day just for  teachers to start off the fun. As you can see below, entries can be as simple or complex, as savory or sweet as you like…they just have to link up to a book.

Dates are:

Teachers-Monday May 9th

Grade Prek,K,1- Monday May 16th

Grade 2,3-TUESDAY May 24th (s0rry it’s not a Monday, I’m in Australia ’til Monday night sorry)

Grade 4,5 – Monday May 30th
