Dear Professionals ,

Many a times I had a request to write or quote upon library activities for school library. Here are some useful points in this regard to make library class and its activities more meaningful.

'Library activities for school students'
Activities should be igniting the spark and consistently scheduled, equipping  students with life long learning skills and developing the imagination. Students should be put up to the fixed routines for the library class without being too predictable.  Streamlining and assigning the kid with a group and rotating them all together with a different kind of  activity in every upcoming month gears up not only the library professionals but also the students. Library activities could be  promoting enjoyment and excitement about reading and involving students with a keen and closer interest  with the library environment.
Naming a few activities beneficial for the students like :

  • Colour them up!
  • Poetry Reading - Finding out Rhyming Words
  • Poem in your pocket- Writing a poem on reading, books, library alike
  • Listing the favourite story/ Book/  Newspaper/  Magazine
  • When and How are you Gifted with books
  • Other language stories
  • Snapping fingers and Finger Puppets props along with the story
  • Mismatched Series Pairing sets of the books
  • Find the book containing colour, numbers in a story
  • Quiz on Characters
  • Puzzle Maina or Pick-a-Puzzle
  • Library Hunt : Science ,Biographies
  • Story Weaving
  • Encircling on Emoji Chart ( Happy/Sad Books)
  • Take a Challenge : Animals and Language Reads
  • Random Clicks : Characters by Profession
  • Random Picks : Magazine reading like Tell me why, Comic books, Sports star
  • Cut-Outs : Morals ( Animals or Character )
  • Tree Diagram of Story Characters
  • Summary Sheet
  • Dumb- Charades Based on stories
  • Make out difference between various books
  • Lets Giggle: Tell a Joke on educational theme
  • Preparation of Story Wheel / Comic Strip/ Book Jackets/ Book Marks
  • Thoughts or one liners briefed in a paragraph
  • Mini Dictionary Wall
  • Summary Sheet
  • Frame a story from Keywords
  • Exhibitions, Displays,Competition, Meet the Author, Book Discussion
  • Write a letter to the author and tell why you did or did not like the book.
  • Pretending that you are a news reporter, provide a 5- minute oral broadcast of the story
  • Character Diary. Write the diary of a character in the story.
  • Write a new ending for the story
  • Make a poster to spark interest to others to read the book
  • Create a mini-book from the story, design a cover: “A Book By You”
  • D.E.A.R. stands for "Drop Everything and Read," a national month-long celebration of reading

Promoting enriched activities goes a long way in a supportive and nurturing environment  to cultivate  students involvement ,enthusiasm and  love of reading at large.
