A fireplace roared in the background.  Tablecloths adorned each table.  Candles flickered.  On Friday, January 31st, seventh and eighth grade reading students sampled great books in Mrs. Amber Proffitt's and Mrs. Jade Tucker's classrooms.  The two teachers opened the connecting doors between their two rooms, and students rotated from table to table "tasting" each course of books set before them.  After each course, students completed their "Book Tasting Menu," ranking books based on their levels of interest.  The experience gave students a chance to add new books to their reading lists and was a great bookend for WMS' literacy week.
