4. Library Scavenger Hunt

(Library Treasure Hunt)

This activity is for your students to better understand the library and to see all that it has to offer. Divide your students into several different groups in an effort to finish a library scavenger hunt first. Give each group a list of ten different items they need to find or list. Some examples of items on the scavenger hunt can be to “Introduce yourself to the librarians and list their names on this sheet,” “List three bound magazine titles and explain what bound magazines are” and “Locate and list a reference book that represents one of your interests”. The first team that answers all the questions correctly wins a prize. All the groups learn a lot more about the library than they knew before.

Clues lead from book to book, from section to section in a random way.

5. Vote your Favourite character Have a vote for your favorite character. Give small pieces of papers to all and tell them to write the name of their favourite character.
6. Cell Phone for your Book Character Create a cell phone for that person (character) with information about their contacts, text message conversations, missed calls, and applications.
7. Mystery Bag Uses paper bags to conceal book covers.  Students get a ‘mystery’ book that they can’t look at before checking it out.  After reading it they report back to the librarian on how they liked the book.  Kids will love the anticipation of getting something unknown to read.
8. Glad Book Sad Book Glad Book Sad Book teaches children how to treat library materials and reinforces how to properly care for books and how to behave in a library. Tape happy and sad faces to a cube the children will roll. Have the children take turns rolling the cube. If a student rolls a happy face, she should provide one example of a way to care for a library book or one way that a person should behave in the library. If the student rolls a sad face, he should give an example of a way to mistreat a library book or a way a person might behave poorly in a library. Create a game board with a finish line and advance each team’s token with every example of happy or sad books they provide, or just play until the time allowed has elapsed or students are out of examples.
9. Readers’ Theatre

 

This activity can help students become more excited about material in classic works of literature that are found in the library. Select several groups of students in a class or grade to put on a presentation of a scene or two from a work of fiction. The presentation can be funny, serious or a mix of both. Try to encourage students who would not normally participate by making it a competition of some kind with a big prize. The students do not have to memorize lines, they simply can sit in their chairs and read the book, but they can use their voices to make the material fun and interesting. This can encourage those watching the presentation to read more after seeing the words come to life. It may just encourage the groups gunning for the cash prize to read a book out loud in a ridiculous way. Either way, more students read as a result of the activity.
10. Book Buffet The activity gives students an opportunity to read genres that they never would have picked up by themselves. Place a different book on each desk in a classroom. Tell students that they will be reading the book for 5 to 8 minutes and then you will tell them to switch with someone else. These books should be of a great variety with many different types represented. At the end of the class, students should have switched 5 to 10 times. Ask them if there are any books they started that they would continue to read if they had the chance. If so, make sure those students get a copy of the books they enjoyed.
11. Story Time

(Story telling & Story reading)

Story time isn’t just for little kids, although it’s an excellent way to engage young students and introduce them to the pleasures of reading. For older students who can already read, consider making story time an “open mic” event. Have story hour once a month and have students sign up for five- or 10-minute slots in which they can tell or read an original story to younger students.  For older students, read out a continuing story or a novel each week.

Reports on the Event in Newspapers

Nurturing appreciation of reading

Staff Reporter

The Hindu, Thiruvananthapuram, April 23, 2014

Writer Jaishree Misra with students of Kendriya Vidyalaya, Pattom, in Thiruvananthapuram on Tuesday.

Writer Jaishree Misra with students of Kendriya Vidyalaya, Pattom, in Thiruvananthapuram on Tuesday.

Writer Jaishree Misra interacts with KV students

Writer Jaishree Misra was 13 when she received her first bit of literary criticism. And it was from none other than a Jnanpith award winner, a celebrated Malayalam novelist who gifted the world Chemmeen, Thakazhi Sivasankara Pillai.

A short story Ms. Misra wrote was published in the Deccan Herald, a clipping of which was sent to the writer, also her greatuncle or ‘Thakazhi Ammavan,’ as she fondly calls him. The writer promptly sent back a point-by-point analysis, picking out the descriptions he liked best and offering constructive criticism.

Having a literary giant in the family helped “take the mystique out of the writing,” she said to an audience of children at Kendriya Vidyalaya, Pattom. She was participating in a ‘Meet the Author’ programme on Tuesday organised in connection with World Book and Copyright Day, which falls on April 23. Though she lived in New Delhi as a child, she managed to get a glimpse of her uncle’s fascinating world, a proximity which eventually helped build her confidence to write a novel.

Reading in Net age

Ms. Misra dwelled long on the subject of reading and how the habit fares in the Internet age.

While the Internet is a wonderful thing in terms of opening up vaults of knowledge, she said what had declined was the quality of reading – “quick, pint-sized, abbreviated and turning into a new language altogether.” “People could soon forget to hold their attention,” she said. Within a piece of literature was a documentation of the human experience that helped you empathise and appreciate other people and cultures, the students were told.

She worked at the British Board of Film Classification, a position which furthered her understanding of censorship.

Ms. Misra had to go through films, some of which were ‘deeply dislikeable’ and were ‘breeding a sense of callousness’ in terms of the violence shown and that there needs to be a limit of what can freely distributed.

View on bans

But, not a singly book should be banned because a group or individual takes offence at it and wants to prevent everyone from reading it, a trend that’s disturbingly on the rise, she said, citing Wendy Doniger’s and Salman Rushdie’s works. “If you don’t like it, don’t read it. Don’t stop the rest of the world from making up their mind.”

Ms. Misra inaugurated a three-day book fair organised in collaboration with Scholastic Inc at KV. It is open from 7.30 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The KV Library also held an International Kids Book Cover Competition 2014, a UNESCO-supported venture, said librarian S.L. Faisal. To mark World Book Day, the school will conduct bookmark designing, book reviewing, and painting competitions, he added. Principal S. Neerada was present.

Students Surprise Jaishree Misra

Express News Service, The New Indian Express, Thiruvananthapuram

23 April 2014.

Author Jaishree Misra arriving at KV Pattom on Tuesday | manu r mavelil

When author Jaishree Misra met the students of Kendriya Vidyalaya Pattom, she was slightly taken aback to learn that such young readers had read her works. “When I write, I generally write for grown-ups and don’t think of children as my audience,” she said while interacting with around a hundred members of the school’s Reader’s Club on Tuesday.

The interaction, arranged as part of World Book and Copyright Day celebrations which fall on Wednesday, saw the author answering some very technical questions from the young audience on the craft of writing – how do those in the writing profession present instances, do they tell them as it is or do they keep an audience in mind? Where do the characters come from? What happens to the bits of writing that may have been edited out?

“Ideally, when you write, you’re told not to keep anyone in mind so that you can be completely committed to the material. But this is easier said than done,” said Misra, who has written seven novels to date and has edited an anthology of stories and poems on motherhood. “In the end, I think it is only your first novel that you can write this way because you don’t know what it’s like to have an audience. My work that was written for myself, keeping no audience in mind is therefore my first, ‘Ancient Promises’,” she added, referring to her semi-autobiographical work.  When asked about the influences on her to take to writing, she mentioned her slightly ‘tightfisted’ Thakazhi ‘ammavan’, referring to Thakazhi Sivasankara Pillai.

“He was such a normal human being that you would forget he was such a great writer,” said Misra. “He made me feel that writing was something I could do. When I got a story published for the first time when I was 13, he wrote me a letter, a feedback pointing out what he liked in my writing.”

Questions also turned to the issue of censorship and banning of books, Misra herself having been at the receiving end when the Uttar Pradesh government banned her historical romance ‘Rani’, on the Rani of Jhansi, in 2008.

“No, absolutely not,” was Misra’s reply when asked by a student whether books should be banned. “Not a single book should be banned. On the other hand, having worked with the British Board of Film Classification, I cannot rule out censorship altogether. There will always be something that is just too much. But books, unlike DVDs or films where the danger of underage viewing is very real, may not be understood by very young readers.”

Misra also spoke to the young readers about the importance of reading books in the digital age where reading has come down to 140 characters.

“If you leave school with a love for reading, then you have an excellent start in life,” she said.

Misra inaugurated a three-day book fair, a collaboration with Scholastic books, on the school premises. The fair is open to the public as well. It is on till April 24 during school hours. Present at the inauguration were S Neerada, principal, Mathew Abraham vice principal and librarian S L Faisal.

UNESCO Kids Book Cover Competition 2014: Download the template and instructions to participate

The World Book and Copyright Day – 23 April

UNESCO has celebrated this day on 23 April for 19 years now, providing an opportunity to reflect on ways to better disseminate the culture of the written words and to allow all individuals to access it, through literacy programmes, open educational resources, and support for careers in publishing, book shops, libraries and schools.

In many countries, books, comics, magazines, newspapers and even posters are rare commodities and the classroom environment is the only place where children will come into contact with words in the written form.

International Book Cover competition

Within this framework, UNESCO is pleased to present to you the Kids Book Cover Competition 2014, which is intended to mobilize children to participate actively in promoting books and reading. It also allows them to be creative, and express their style and personality. Children are invited to express their ideas through a drawing in the form of a book cover. In this way, children and teachers could make a collective effort in thinking on books’ contribution to education and dissemination of knowledge.

Who can participate?

Contestants must be 6 to 13 years old. This is an ideal activity for individual students and community youth club members. There is no limit in the number of book cover entries a school or a youth club can submit. Children from all over the world are invited to participate in the competition by the closing date of 20 April 2014.

Competition theme

Each participant should draw his/her book cover that illustrates the following theme:

Respecting Differences UNESCO considers that education is essential to strengthening the foundations of tolerance, reducing discrimination and violence, and learning to live together. Education is vital to achieve these aims and cultivate respect for all people regardless of colour, gender, or national, ethnic or religious identity. It is especially important to reach out to children and young people during their formative years, notably through educational materials and curricula.

Book Cover template

Use the Book Cover template, colour it with your own amazing design and with a book title you dream up. The template can be copied or reproduced on a separate sheet of paper. All possible techniques can be used to do the drawings, separately or mixed: coloured felt pens, paint, markers, stickers, colour pencils, etc.

The proposed cover should display:

 a visual1: drawing, picture, collage

 a catchy title

 your name as the author

 an invented name of a publisher

Since there will be no dialogue in the cover, drawings must communicate the basic message. Some key worlds may be added if needed.

 

Submission of the book covers

The original copy of the cover should be sent to the office of the National Commission for UNESCO of your country at the latest by: 20 April 2014.

If a photo is chosen, it may not display an identifiable person unless permission is obtained and provided. The drawings can be in black and white or in color.

Prior to submitting your entry, remember to put your personal details on a separate sheet: your name, surname, age, the name and address of your school and the name of your professor. The criteria for selection will be based on the originality of the proposals and the relevance to the theme.

Winners

Up to five drawings per age group (from 6 to 9 and from 10 to 13) will be selected by the National Commission of your country. Finalists at the national level will receive a UNESCO certificate. All of the national finalists will have a chance to enter the international round, where the drawings will be judged by an independent jury of experts. In May 2014, three drawings per age group will be selected by the jury at the UNESCO Headquarters.

There will be 6 winners, and each of them will receive a UNESCO certificate and a UNESCO medal.

The drawings will be scanned and put online on the UNESCO World Book and Copyright Day webpage: www.unesco.org/new/wbcd.

The drawings will not be returned. UNESCO reserves the right to use them in publications, exhibitions, or as promotional support material. If so used, they will be properly credited with the children’s/school’s name.
