Speed Dating with Books!


This past week in Library Media Club,  We had a Speed Dating activity.  We had six books and a stack of DATE CARDS at each of the five tables.  Students had 3 minutes per table to peruse the books and rate them on the DATE  CARDS.  The books were rated from 1-10 (10 being the highest) based on how much the students would like to read them.  After the 3 minute timer went off (we used http://www.timer-tab.com/ ), students moved to the next table.  

The 5 tables were: 

  1. Biography 



  1. Nonfiction  




  1. Graphic Novel Fiction and Nonfiction 





  1. Realistic Fiction and Adventure 




  1. Fantasy 



Upon the sounding of the final timer, the students circled their three top-rated books on their cards.    I drew names from a cup to determine who was able to check out their book first.  

We had a lot of fun and the kids went home with books they were really excited to read!!
