January Displays

Our January library displays are up.

Our "Healthy Apps" Display for the month of January
In our school, January is Wellness Month. To celebrate, the library hosts WiiFit Fridays, where students can play WiiSports or Just Dance! during study hall and lunch. (If you squint, you can just make out the Wii action in the background of the above photo.)

(Imagine this is rotated 90 degrees) Fooducate pillar in the library. 

In addition to our Wii activities, we have a display on Healthy Apps.  Fooducate, a fantastic app that helps you make healthier food choices, is totally worth checking out if you're unfamiliar with it.

Above: Our "grocery store" in the library.
We installed the app on our library iPads and iPods, and students used it to scan barcodes on all kinds of different food. We definitely feel like we're running a grocery store with all these items on our shelves! The app gives each food a letter grade and provides suggestions for healthier alternatives.

Red Carpet for Books

We're using a bulletin board to display the recent book award winners announced at the Youth Media Awards last week. We went with a "Red Carpet" theme to promote the winners.

With only a few days to go in the month, it's time to get rocking and rolling with February displays!
