Our Scholastic Book Fair is a huge hit for our students. For some student’s reading is not the most fun activity but with the book fair it excites our students into wanting to read. Our administrative assistant, Mel, puts on this book fair year after year not only as a way to give students access to books, but as a great fundraiser for the school. Each student is given a limit of money to spend and they can pick out books they would want to read, or they can use this opportunity as a way to get gifts since it is near the holidays. Students are challenged with sticking with their budget and not going over. This is a great, easy way to teach students about financing while giving them the opportunity to practice that skill in a real-life scenario.
