Literary Tea Party

One of our language arts traditions is to celebrate the end of our academic year with a Literary Tea Party. Each student chooses a character from a book we have read and comes to class in costume. Some of us share refreshments that were mentioned in the stories. Characters who came to tea this year were from the novels: Under the Blood Red Sun, by Graham Salisbury (currently in the process of being made into a movie for release in April 2014); Elijah of Buxton, by Christopher Paul Curtis; The Shakespeare Stealer, by Gary Blackwood; Found by Margaret Peterson Haddix; and Freak the Mighty, by Rodman Philbrick. Guests also included characters from adaptations of Henry IV and Romeo and Juliet, by, of course, William Shakespeare.  

If you could be any character in a book, whom would you choose and why?

  1. That party was really fun! I am so glad that I dressed up as Billy. My favorite picture was when Franklin was pretending to use the Katana on me for the class picture. What was your favorite picture?

    • Another great part of the tea party was socializing and eating the great variety of food, from rice to fruit punch soda.

  2. I had a lot of fun this year at the Literary Tea Party. I dressed up as Falconer from the book we read called The Shakespeare Stealer. Will there be a Literary Tea Party next year?
