Collaborative Display – Wings
I love creating displays that engage students. Whether that’s because they can interact with the display itself, like my Mr Potato Head display, or because they have played some role in creating the display, I find that interaction increases engagement and that means the library displays are more successful.
Dot Day Display
Have you read The Dot by Pete H. Reynolds? It is one of my favourite picture books. I love its message of creativity and having a go.
International Dot Day is celebrated on the 15th (ish) of September. This year we celebrated International Dot Day by creating a special Dot display.
I printed off a load of blank dots – easily made with Word and the circle shape. Inspired by the story, the students created their own dot. Emoji and Pokemon symbols were popular choices for the students, while others created beautiful patterns. I also printed off some celebri-dots from the celebri-dots website, to provide some inspiration.
I then made a giant dot out of all our little dots and added the quote “Just make a mark and see where it takes you” to the bottom of the display. It was a great way to incorporate student artwork into a display.
