Book displays to promote reading

I am always on the look out for interesting items to add to the book display cases in the K-6 Library. We have two display cases, one in the K-2 section and one in the Primary area. The displays focus on book promotions, book anniversaries, literature themes, story elements or events such as Reconciliation Week. This year students were welcomed to the Library with Peter Pan and the display for younger students showcased some special book characters. Today we created a Harry Potter and Mr Chicken books display. It is a pleasure to see students enter the Library and look into the display cases with excitement.

I Read!

Reading was the focus for Year 2’s first Library lesson. I read Charlie Cook’s Favourite Book 
by Julia Donaldson which inspired great discussion. The students were then invited to write about themselves as readers starting with ‘I read…’ ideas were shared and I was able to get a quick snapshot of what the students were currently reading, where they read, when they read, who they read to or with and other interesting going on’s about reading. It also made for a quick display of readers.
