BRIGHT IDEAS - February 28, 2007

One year ago this week, we introduced you to Bright Ideas: For Bright Young Minds. Through the past year, this column has given young and old alike brain-teasing activities, weekly information about our home state, library updates and challenges, as well as a few giggles.

“Bright Ideas came out of a desire to offer elementary school children something to enjoy and learn from each week in the newspaper,” said Lisa Sheldon, its creator. “It also may lead our young readers to look at other parts of the paper and possibly learn about current events in their own county.”

Each week, Bright Ideas has Activity Alley, which includes word scrambles, crossword puzzles, The Chronicle Code, word finds, mazes, recipes, etc.; Knowing Home, which quizzes readers about wild, wonderful West Virginia; Library Lookout, which spot-lights different aspects of Calhoun County Library, gives challenge questions and answers, highlights children’s book, and gives biography bits on children’s authors; and Silly Shots, which show-cases some of the goofiest jokes ever.

Sheldon is advertising director of The Calhoun Chronicle. She is an advocate for children’s activities at Calhoun County Library, and, last summer, she was a driving force behind the Reading Rewards Program and the revamped Summer Story Series. She is already working on these programs for the upcoming summer break.

“Reading is the key to literacy and literacy is the key for our children to become active, productive adults. So, whether it is books, magazine articles or the newspaper, encouraging children to read has some of the longest lasting benefits you can pass on to the children you love,” said Sheldon.

Bright Ideas is all set for another fun and informative year. Take a few minutes and look for it each week.
