World Book Day -they think it’s all over

and they would be right!

Great Day yesterday?

If you didn’t get the chance to swap you WBD voucher yesterday – don’t worry we still have some of the special WBD books left – so pop into the MRC today or early next week.

So did you manage to identify all four book characters at our “Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner” competition – here are the answers…..

WBD Guess (4)  Alice in Wonderland – not Dynamo the magician

WBD Guess (2)

  Charlie from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

WBD Guess (1)

 Winnie the Pooh

World Book Day

Today has been World Book Day – just in case you have missed it!

The MRC has been as busy as usual but with excitement in the air!

The first student arrived at 7.50 am to use their WBD voucher and swap it for one of the WBD books, it seems that less people are trying to use their ‘friends’ vouchers which is good as they are using them for themselves, and although some of the older students were disappointed with the young choice of titles I have chatted to a few P16 students about using the voucher to get £1 off a book in town.

 

 

 

So what else have we been doing?

Well I tried something new (new to us) with a Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner display/competition – and this has proved to be both popular and head-scratching. I’ll reveal the answers soon!IMG_1136

appWhat has also ‘gone down well’ is the Books Alive App – I’ve demonstrated this free app using my iPad to a chorus of “wows” and “that’s sick” and students were keen to download the App to their own devices.

Sticking with the technology theme I also set 6 WBD puzzles using QR codes and morphed images of the authors of some of the £1 books.

Finally I circulated a book related quiz (on Powerpoint) to all tutors for tomorrow’s DEAR session – but I’ve seen it on some whiteboards already.

wbdThe day is almost over, phew!

Roll on next year!
