Speed dating book talks psp anime dating sim english
Kari and I shared a Google Doc and added all our online finds and ideas and after about two weeks, we completed our plan, promotions, and layout for Book Speed Dating 2014.
The Promotion and Layout We made a variety of small and large posters and hung them in the English Hallways.
I felt as satisfied as if I had just finished a long awaited novel myself. The students were engaged in books and even if they abandoned a title, each had tried something new.
One of the most powerful things I can do for my students is work to promote reading for fun and helping students find books that they will enjoy.
Announcements littered the airwaves each week and curious students examined the display case outside the library. After a quick trip to the store to secure candy hearts, streamers, and red plastic table cloths, I recruited a crew of students to yank books and organize them by genre tables.
The Fun The timers were set, the genre tables organized, and the “rate your date” handouts were copied and ready.
Speed book dating rotation, give each student 60 seconds every rotation, and 30 seconds to answer Book Speed Dating questions.Round after round of speed dating yielded both rejected books as well as “the chosen” pick. Reflections on a Good Day Rarely do students send thank you notes or bolt to the circulation desk to check out a book! I would be remiss if I didn’t thank Tiffany Whitehead, aka The Mighty Little Librarian, Mrs.Kirr’s Genius Hour Blogspot, and mrsreaderpants for the book speed dating resources provided on their blogs.
And I LOVE that lots of book replenishing is needed after each class! What other tried and true activities do you use for the love of reading?
