Product Description

This Valentine's Day, get your students excited to try different kinds of books! "Blind Date with a Book" ideas are all over Pinterest, but setting it all up can be time-consuming and stressful for busy librarians. This kit includes everything you need to let your students do the bulk of the work (wrapping the books), saving you time and energy.

NOTE: Because I use the term "blind date," this activity is best-suited for middle and high school students. If you prefer the term "mystery book" instead of "blind date," please see Unwrap a Mystery Book instead. It's the same product exactly, but it does not use the term "blind date." I list elementary grades in the product description, but it would also work for middle and high school.

This Set-Up Kit includes:

  • 2-pages of instructions and tips for librarians (editable in PowerPoint)

  • Creation Station center instructions--this is where students will wrap the books and attach recommendation cards (editable in PowerPoint)

  • 8 recommendation cards--students fill these out and attach them to the books (editable in PowerPoint)

  • 8 "How did it go?" cards--students fill these out after they try a Book Blind Date. They can turn these in for a chance to win a daily, weekly, or Grand Prize drawing. (editable in PowerPoint)

  • High-resolution, full-color display poster--put this with your Blind Date books on display. There are three versions, two of which have editable text boxes.

  • PowerPoint lesson for students on how to create a book blind date (9 slides, editable)

  • lots of sample photos from my library--these are inside the PowerPoint presentation for students. You can delete my photos and add your own photos, or you are welcome to use my photos if you prefer.)
