Lately, memes have been known on the Internet for their absurdity and general hey-lookit-this-ness. Examples would be the Mr. T/Chuck Norris/Jack Bauer jokes, Winning at Everything , Rick-Rolling, and most recently distressing to me, the "All the Things" which takes the best blog post ever on the Internet out for salad and breadsticks after promising Italian and never calls it again.

"Guess Who" was the adaptation for the little ones at the Story Action Pod. There were eight in total; the ones listed on the left, as well as Skippyjon Jones, Pigeon, Clifford and Mouse (and a cookie).
There's a bag on the pod with the titles inside it. Kids reach in and match the book's cover to the character. They get so excited when they get them right, and they don't need help from their parents!

Harry Potter, Origami Yoda, Greg Heffley, Clementine, Lunch Lady
Underneath is a "cheat sheet" since the popularity of chapter book characters varies among different kids, but they don't have to use it.
We were originally were thinking about giving out prizes or something, but for the past week the displays have really worked for themselves as that "stealth programming" we've been trying a lot lately. It's also been called "passive programming", I know, but that just has such a different connotation to me.
At any rate, this was fun and took minimal time to put together. AND it fits perfectly with the Cookie Club program we're running right now.*
*I just realized I haven't yet written a post about Cookie Club yet. December needs more posts like I need more hours in the day!
EDIT: Luckily for me, Marge wrote it up.
