Using Humor in the Classroom “But why do I have to go? School is not fun!” That quote is from a first-grade child, asking his mom why he has to go every single day to this place that he was told was going to be a lot of fun, but has not lived up to the hype. If he could articulate further, he might say, "I am only six. I like to have fun, but school is not fun and from what I can tell, it's going to get worse every year, not better."

This idea is a direct result of the amazing librarians and teachers I follow. After reading this article about Teen Lit Boot Camp classes, taking part in the Shelf Challenge and following along with Donalyn Miller's Book Gap challenge, these three ideas morphed in my head to become the Middle Grade Book Boot Camp.

Below are some ideas I have used successfully, plus other ideas I have used in other classes and adapted here for use with picture dictionaries. Races Movers & Shakers 2015 — Educators Fail-Safe “I think we need to teach and show students that failure is a very real part of life and learning,” says Sherry Gick, who was the librarian for Rossville Consolidated Schools in Indiana for five years before becoming the district’s K−12 library and instructional technology specialist in 2014. Gick embraces the pedagogy of “meaningful failure,” emphasizing the process of learning. “The library is a great place to demonstrate this and allow students to try many different things,” she says. Creating both a physical and mental space that “students don’t want to leave” was part of Gick’s initiative to develop a safe space for kids. Through grant writing and Donors Choose, her library has been transformed into a hangout hot spot, with a large leather couch, a chair, an ottoman, bean bags, and plush carpet, to which students flock to talk comic books, request books they’d like, or create Post-it art in her library’s window display.
