Shelf Talker On The Shelf 4 Kids By Kids
Students in grades 3, 4, and 5 had the option after checking out books to make shelf talkers. What are shelf talkers? Simple stuff, really! We took index cards and folded them in half. The top half gets taped onto the shelf near the book it is "talking" about. The title, author, and student name are required, as well as the student's library section on the back. The student can then add a brief descriptor or small picture to try to persuade others to read the book. I'm hoping to have tons of shelf talkers around our library as the school year progresses. This will be an optional assignment for students after check out with materials ready for students to create shelf talkers all year long. I was hoping to get a bit more crafty with shelf talkers with speech bubbles and student pictures, but sometimes simple is best. And that leaves me something to aspire to!
