This past March, our 4-6 school participated in a March Madness Battle of the Books. We started the month off with a flash mob featuring many teachers, administrators, paraprofessionals, office staff, and tutors. Here’s the video our local TV produced for us:
Throughout the month of March, students voted for their favorite books via a Google form. Of course, Harry Potter won in the end. The day before spring vacation we celebrated Harry's win with a Harry Potter day. Students were encouraged to come to school dressed as their favorite HP character. Students made up their own school "spells," we made golden snitches and hid them around the school, held a trivia contest at lunch while the kids dined on Hagrid's Stoat sandwiches.
The kids really enjoyed the day, the staff loved performing our flash mob and our circulation got a nice bump from all the books going out.
