Tickets hidden in library books! My version of the golden tickets has different colors to use in different genres. Hide these in library books that have not been checked out in a while. The green ones will encourage the students to try a new book too.
This would be a great, quiet passive activity for a whole range of ages. Passive programming for YA section. Pages from weeded books and Sharpies. Participants create poetry by leaving select words visible and blacking out the rest.
Have you tried First Chapter Friday with your high school students? Students love being read to by a teacher, and this approach allows them to experience different genres, authors, narrators, and more. #HighSchoolELA #FirstChapterFriday
