Seeking Advice, 2
Going to visit a couple of fifth and sixth grade classrooms in a couple of weeks to get kids excited about our SRP. I’ll be meeting them (maybe 20 at a time) during their library time. So far, working once a week through the winter and with no school year programming (yet!), I’ve only met one or two of these guys.
I’m planning on bringing reading logs and program calendars, and also plugging our big-budget event, the Hunger Games Training Day, really hard. I was also thinking maybe I could do some sort of quick book trivia warmup (“What’s the name of Prim’s cat?” “What is Tris’s original faction?,” etc., with maybe, like, packets of Pop Rocks as prizes?).
Have you done something similar? Or are you a teacher or school librarian, who knows what she’d like to see in a visit from the local public librarian? Advise away!
