Emoji Reading Display
Emoji seem to be everywhere, on our phones, in our messages to one another, even on the front cover of books. I decided to takes these ever-present little faces and create a display that could be interactive.
I downloaded and printed a collection of emoji. Reusing some of my cover photocopies I had some student volunteers suggest emoji-book pairings. I then encouraged other students to choose a book from the shelf, perhaps a favourite, and stick on an emoji before placing it on the display table. Some colour-appropriate wording and a cute emoji-for-readers list complete the display.
The students have loved this display. Many have made recommendations and turn-over of titles has been good. Other students have suggested I add different emoji. The display is bright, eye-catching and a crowd pleaser.
