A quick-to-make display for our junior high students using photos of books with annotations paper-clipped to file folders and a couple of centrepiece signs made from dollar store foam bags, bandanas, and simple printed signs adhered to sticks.
I didn’t pull books for the display, but left them shelved for students to hunt down. Having books for students to grab from the display is great, but our students sometimes need to have a little less “instant gratification” and learn how to find books shelved by the author’s last name. It also helps them learn to browse the shelves and have their attention captured by books they may not notice otherwise.
I realized after the fact that the little bubbles under the big thought bubble look like caterpillars hanging down, but it’s supposed to be a short-lived display so I’m hopeful no one will notice! :)
