Gum Ball Poetry Station Idea

poemCari (@myschoollibrary) from the Centered School Library tweeted a fabulous Pin recently. It was of this wonderful gumball machine that had been transformed into a poem dispenser.

She started an intense search to see how cheaply she could find a gumball machine that would really work. These are available for sale on amazon (and probably other places).Less than a week later she had a vending machine filled with jokes and riddles in the library! She was able to make the machine free spin so it can be used without quarters. She also keeps a jar out for students to recycle the capsules.

She hopes to mix up the content of the machine to try poetry, book recommendations, Dewey number suggestions, or trivia questions.
