Ratner School Book fair in Beachwood

Posted by Tim Lewis on December 10th, 2015

The primary goal of any school, education community, or  parent groups is to inculcate the habit of reading in children. And organising book fair is one of the popular ways of getting children to read. Though book fairs also help in raising money for any social cause, but its main goal is to impart literacy. Getting kids to read  in itself is the primary motivation for book fairs and it takes a lot of efforts and focus on making sure that children are reading, and thus developing a healthy habit towards books.

Running a successful book fair that can get kids excited about reading new things takes more efforts than fixing on event date and venue. Organise, Publicise, merchandise , interest and fun are the key points to get more and more kids interested in books and book fairs. A successful book fair needs a proper planning and marshalling volunteers. The event organisers need to coordinate with teachers, librarians, or reading specialists to understand what types of books can interest a particular age group of children and thus finalising on the curriculum and theme for the book fair. 

Understanding the need and importance of reading in the growth and development of kids, The Lilian and Betty Ratner School organised“Barnes and Noble Book Fair” on Thursday, Dec 3rd, 2015, between 5-9pm. The event started with a story time at 5pm, thereafter Jungle terry at 6pm , Crafts and others activities at 7pm and Face painting and games from 7:30pm onwards. The event witnessed kids and other participants in the true Ratner spirit. The percentage of purchase from the book fair was given to the Ratner Parent Organisation and the Ratner School Library. Ratner School book fair was all about raising funds to support the library, while having a great time with friends and family at Barnes and Noble. Hire a Cleveland Hts taxi services, or Beachwood taxi services to make way to the event venue in time.

Book fairs can be a successful and an interesting event if its a family affair too. Schools should encourage parents participation by organising it during parent conferences or open house in the evening. You can also look for having a special occasion with a dinner or other social gatherings. Schools can also use the family book fairs a way to create community at school or to hold workshops giving parents tips on how to get kids read more.

We believe, that book fairs are one of the best ways to engage students and motivate them to read. For this the best way is to increase parents and faculty participation at your school, and help kids in need. This can also be done by inviting teachers to an exclusive event where they can browse through the event, select the right books for their school library and make a wishlist accordingly. Sometimes achieving the reading goal can become an ultimate challenge when the educators agree to grant a privilege to the students who meet or exceed them. The educators and schools can team up with their students to plan the best book fair ever. They will learn the valuable skills, while getting creative with their peers. Call to arrange for a Shaker Heights taxi services, or Bedford Heights taxi services and make yourselves comfortable to reach the event venue.
