This week we started the Adopt a Shelf program at Nose Creek School. Students who sign up will get their own shelf in the L.C. where they can promote the books that they love.
They are in charge of promoting and maintain their shelves in order to get the books signed out by their peers. They will have two weeks to do this.
We started this program on Tuesday and the students are loving it. Currently we have 10 students signed up. Some students share a shelf with their friend and some want the entire shelf to them selves.
I have given them supplies in order for them to decorate their shelves. As you can see in the pictures Amanda's shelf is the most popular right now. She has great signage, decorations in order to catch your eye and she has supplied her peers with free book marks to promote her shelf.
During lunch yesterday we had many students working on their shelves. This created a lot of curiosity about the shelves and I had questions like "Why do they get their own shelves?" "Can I have my own shelf?" and my answer to that was "of course you can!"
I am hoping this exciting continues and grows!
