During the month of October, Library lessons were focused on characters. I created a “Guess the Mystery Character” bulletin board to help students understand the importance of character traits. Students looked at the silhouette of each character and then read the Wordle descriptions to guess which character was represented. This year I focused on recognizable characters, but next year I plan on adding some more challenging upper-level characters to the mix. :)
October ended with one of my favorite days: Book Character Day! This year, I dressed as the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland to go along with the Kingdom of Reading book fair and handed out free bookmarks to all students who visited the Library that day. Kids were really creative with their costumes this year – and had fun sharing information about their characters with classmates and Book Buddies!
