Last week, I posted pictures of some of the fun teen displays we have created. This week, I am going to share some of my favorite children’s displays. I don’t have as many displays from our Children’s Department as I was originally hired as a teen programmer. Next time, I’ll post some of my favorite bulletin boards from my days as a preschool teacher.
This board is from our Literacy Corner. We typically leave these displays up for a few months at a time due to their large nature and placement in the department. This was for Spring. The six early literacy skills were glued in the center of each flower.
This was for our poetry month display. Every year we hold a poetry contest for children and teens (and now adults). The theme this year was “How Sweet It Is,” so after a few different layouts, we finally went with the gumball machine. Some of the gumballs have our favorite poets written on them.
When I did baby storytime, I always tried to include a little sign language. And after visiting a local elementary school, I discovered many of the hearing impaired students attended the school. So we tried a sign language storytime. It didn’t draw as many people as we had hoped, but we had fun creating the display.!
To celebrate Chinese New Year and the year of the dragon, we created this “Blazin’ Reads” bulleting board. It took at least three or four of us to create it. One staff member had a dragon-head from a previous job, so we worked around it. The books on display were all about dragons or featured dragons as main characters.
I just love penguins! And some of these penguins were so adorable. Thanks to some awesome coworkers, this display was a so “cool!” The books on display were all about winter and penguins.
