Today’s challenge is another of our team-submitted challenges, this time from the Red Sox-Yankees (3 points for you).
Take your favorite novel and write discussion questions that a group could use to discuss the book. Each question is worth one point, with a maximum of 15 points for the challenge. Post a picture of the questions, and make sure to include the title and author of the book. Tags for this challenge are snoisle14 and snoisle14-40.
40?!! Wow. Keep up the great work, everyone!
Haikus are easy
But sometimes they don’t make sense.
You can do better than that. You all know a haiku is a poem with three lines, following this format:
Now, use your amazing poetic abilities to write a series of ten haikus that, when put together, tell a single well-known story (from a book or fairy tale).
This challenge is worth 15 points. No partial credit will be given. Be sure to count your syllables, because you’ll either get 15 points for 10 perfectly formed haikus, or zero points. I know, life is harsh.
Submit as many pics as you need to clearly show all ten of your haikus, in order. Also, make it clear what story your poetry is retelling. Remember your hash-tags!
Need some inspiration? Here are a few of the many haiku books you can find in Sno-Isle libraries:
I’m hungry. Please arrange for me, using your favorite alphabet-shaped food, a quote from a book. Any book. Any quote. 10 points. Additional 5 points for quotes longer than 10 words.

If you have ever entertained out of town guests by going into Seattle and doing tourist stuff, you know just how fun it can be. We take it for granted because it is in our back yard, but there is some great stuff to do. My favorites include visiting the Fremont Troll, going up the Space Needle, doing the Underground Tour, and going to the Aquarium…but that is just a small sampling of the fun you can have. Here is what we want you to do:
This is worth between 8 and 90 points.
ps…3 points to Team of the Phoenix for this great idea!
So, how is your summer going? Is it everything you hoped for? Or maybe it is not quite living up to your expectations? This week’s book is written by cousins Jillian Tamaki and Mariko Tamaki (who created the book Milk together) and is a beautiful graphic novel called This One Summer. It is about two girls spending their annual vacation at the lake together, but who find not everything is as relaxing and fun as they remember.
From the publisher:
Every summer, Rose goes with her mom and dad to a lake house in Awago Beach. It’s their getaway, their refuge. Rosie’s friend Windy is always there, too, like the little sister she never had. But this summer is different. Rose’s mom and dad won’t stop fighting, and when Rose and Windy seek a distraction from the drama, they find themselves with a whole new set of problems. One of the local teens - just a couple of years older than Rose and Windy - is caught up in something bad… Something life threatening. It’s a summer of secrets, and sorrow, and growing up, and it’s a good thing Rose and Windy have each other.
For your chance to win this great book, tell us about the best part of your summer (so far), and the most disappointing thing, too.
Random Number Generator will pick a winner on Tuesday July 22, 2014. Be sure to leave a name with your entry, and check back to see if you won. To win you must be a teen (6th-12th grade, or age 12-18) who uses a Sno-Isle Library.
You know how, when you’re reading a really good book, you almost feel like you become that character? Well, for today’s challenge, you get to make this feeling real. Kind of. We want you to dress up as a character from a book, and take a picture posing with the book featuring that character.
It’s never too early to get your Halloween on!
Time to spread your reading wings again and try out something new. This week’s challenge is to read a biography or autobiography about somebody that interests you. The story of someone’s life can be inspiring, amazing, or downright crazy - and some of the best life stories are about people you’ve never heard of. Biographies are a great way to learn about other cultures, or what it was like to live during a different time.
You’re probably experts at this by now, but here’s a refresher on how this challenge works:
This challenge is worth three points, and may be repeated by teen team members four times for a total of 12 points. Judges will verify that the book reviews have been received before awarding the points.
If you need reading suggestions, ask your local Teen Contact or check these booklists for ideas:
Hello Scavenganzers! We’re about halfway through summer, so I think it’s time for a little transformation.
Hint: Do a subject search in the library catalog for “T-Shirts.” You’ll see at least 10 books chock-full of ideas on how to pull this challenge off.
