Fostering curiosity in kids (and their parents) since 2011

Experiment #7264532: “So You’re in Middle School, Now What?“ Pop-up Display

Not much time today between school, grad school, and mandatory school shooter response trainings, but I’m super pleased with how my pop-up display on middle school themed books turned out and wanted to share a few pictures.

We found a tiered display stand in the storage room, so of course I’m using it to display a mix of fiction, nonfiction, and graphic novel books on navigating middle school. (Photo: Shala Howell)
The back of the stand is basically a giant black wall, so I used Canva to make ads for the different type of books folks will find in my display. Oh and added another line of books so folks would have stuff to look at no matter where they are standing. (Photo: Shala Howell)
Graphic novels are clustered on one end of the display, but otherwise the books are all jumbled together. I am unconvinced that this will work, but I didn’t have enough display stands to segregate by type and you work with what you have not what you wish you had. (Photo: Shala Howell)
I am going to need to straighten that sign when I get in to work today. I don’t like it catty-wompered like that. (Photo: Shala Howell)

Anyway that’s what I did yesterday to move some books. I have a cart of nonfiction books to refill those nonfiction gaps but we have so many fiction and graphic novels set in middle school that I’m just going to grab whatever’s on the shelves at the moment to plug holes as they happen.
