Discover and save creative ideas

    New Years Resolution Display -- This Year I Will... -- learn to bake, learn to knit, get online, put my finances in order, travel, spend more time with my family (library activities instead of books), become a better reader, get in shape, eat healthy, get my taxes done early, become a better athlete, try something new, listen to an audio book, eat healthier foods, get more exercise, lose weight, quit smoking, get organized -- Add and Remove topics as you wish.

    Interactive New Years Resolutions book display! I covered the display table in different goals, like "Be nice to my brother or sister", "Save money", "Learn a new skill", and "Clean my room", and invited kids to 'vote' by putting a star sticker on the thing that they are most excited to do in 2015. Then I stocked the display with Juvenile Nonfiction titles for all the different resolutions, like art books and cookbooks.

    Love the idea of "This Year I Will..." resolutions with books.

    Here's a fun graphic organizer to use with older students. The parts of the Story Hat Map include characters, setting, conflict, resolution, and theme. Many of Dr. Seuss's more advanced books would work well with this story map.

    Personalized Bookmarks - Gift in the Beginning of the School Year?

    A great way to start off the year or display great summer reads.

    Six Word Memoir - I love the idea of having students write one at the beginning of the school year at the middle school level instead of the same old "get to know you" activities. Could also be a great kick-off to Poetry Workshop...
