Pink speed dating

I've wanted to try it out for awhile now, and I finally went for it last week.

I wanted to use a smaller "test" group before trying this with a class of 35 eighth graders, so I tried it with our resource reading classes first.

Students with a spade or club (black card) get a "sour face" at the end of their book date (a warhead candy). Next time, we'll get to squeeze in more rotations since I won't have to take time explaining how it works.

Best of all, they were introduced to LOTS of new books and genres!

I went through the Power Point slides, introducing speed dating and how it relates to our book speed dating activity. After all the "dating" has finished, each student will choose a playing card from the middle of the tables.

We went over the directions thoroughly, and I made absolutely certain everyone knew what to do. Students who got a heart or a diamond (red card) get a "kiss" at the end of their date (Hershey's kiss). Many of the books got checked out, and the students were really engaged and enjoyed it.

The infection usually begins with one eye, but may spread easily to the other.

The symptoms are due to release of histamine and other active substances by mast cells, which stimulate dilation of blood vessels, irritate nerve endings, and increase secretion of tears.
