Why can’t a library be fun?

11 Mar

The other day I (literally) woke up thinking about the next plan for the library window display. I want it to be fun. I want students to care. I want to get students into the library.

So I will bribe them with candy.

We have put up a Puzzle It Out display. There are 5 different puzzles and the students have one week to figure them out. On Wednesday next week any student who can tell me the answer to the question of my choice will get a 5 cent candy (Costco, here I come!). I’m interested to see how many kids we get in. I will keep you posted!

      Hi Laura,
      Some of them I made up and others I Googled. Some of the ones that I Googled, I changed a little bit so that students couldn’t just Google them and find the answers.
