In my last post I said that I was pretty happy about my book corner at school. Here's why.
I started using a system for my book corner last year where each book has a number and there are bins that are labeled with that number so the kids always know where to put the book when they are done. I got the idea from the 2 Sisters. It worked great last year, but it took A LOT of time to set up. My husband spent 2-3 days at school helping me and we still had 3 big bins of pictures books left that weren't sorted. I never got them done last year, but this year I was determined - and I did it!! Now there's a place for everything and everything is in its place.
|My husband is a very good sport about the amount |
of money I have spent on books for my classroom.
In fact his halo is glowing in that department
Mark hung the gutters for me to display books in a couple of years ago. I tell the kids that this is how book stores sell the most books - by showing the front cover and getting our attention. It's a fun way to display seasonal and holiday books, too.
I am ready and excited for the students to arrive tomorrow. It's going to be another great year!
P.S. This was my 99th post! Holy guacamole!
