This year, East Vincent Elementary School joined in the celebration of a nation of diverse readers! Throughout the week of February 24th - March 2nd, staff will be celebrating reading and literacy where we motivate our students to fall in love with reading as we celebrate a nation of diverse readers with books, authors, and activities that represent an array of experiences and cultures.

The theme for the Book Tasting at East Vincent is "windows and mirrors". Mirror books are texts where children can see themselves, their families, and their communities reflected and valued, which gives them a sense of belonging. Window books are texts where children can see into the lives of others which helps develop empathy and understandings about the wider world. The plans include teaching students about mirror and window books, finding mirror and window books through a school-wide book tasting, and completing follow-up activities to share those books as well as what students have gained as a result of these activities.
