Book Fair is coming! This is how we get ready!

Hi everyone!

Our 2nd book fair is coming and I made these a long time ago, but finally shared it on TPT! They are IB at the Book Fair posters! Enjoy!

I also have sort of a media blitz for our book fair this time!

I sent out:
4 weeks to Book Fair: April Calendar + info on the back
3 weeks to Book Fair: Nothing - week before Spring Break
2 weeks to Book Fair - Coloring sheet (online from Scholastic) + info on the back (same as April Calendar)
1 week to Book Fair: Classroom Wishlist (Color/draw/write choice) + info on how to purchase for Wishlist


On the back of all: 

I use these and put some up (have fast finishers do two (ask them very excitedly and they are usually happy to do it) and send the rest home. Great way to remind parents and students! Need these? Go to the Book Fair Blog Post Folder to find the Classroom Wish Lists (all 3 versions) and the Classroom Wish List instructions (back). 

Thanks for reading! Let me know how you get ready for the book fair! I would love to hear your wonderful ideas!
Keep reading,

This is what they came up with:


They are just so creative!

Thanks for reading! Let me know if you use this silly idea too! I would love to hear your wonderful ideas!
