how to put on a speed dating event-14

So I try to do as much as possible to talk to my students about what they’re reading and help them find books that will get them hooked!

One activity that I’ve found to be extremely successful this year is a round of “Book Speed Dating.” I know that this is an activity that many librarians have done for years…it’s tried and true for a reason!

I especially like that I can customize the boxes for the classes/grades that I have visiting.

And I LOVE that lots of book replenishing is needed after each class! What other tried and true activities do you use for the love of reading?

Participants greet each other in a series of brief exchanges during a set period of time.
