I am really looking forward to getting back into my library and spending time with my students. I think I have the best job in the school -- I get to hang around at the intersection of reader and story and watch the magic happen. Stick around. We've got a great year planned.
With just one week before the start of school, I decided to rearrange my library! I am feeling great about this -- even after a week of very long days physically re-shelving about 4,000 books. I still need to create more signage (not my forte) and bring in a few other items, but I cannot wait for tomorrow when my students will see the newly refurbished space. Hmmmmm. I hope they notice.
|I tried to make the flow into and through the library more open.|
|I created an instructional space on the left. It is bounded by the fiction section.|
|I created a new Early Reader Section.|
|I moved all my tables and desktops into one area. |
It will make managing 28 5th graders on desktops/laptops a bit easier!
|Looking back toward the entrance. (It is still only a 30 by 20-ish size space.)|
|I created a Graphic Novel Section.|
Stay tuned! I'll share first week reactions and stories as the week progresses.
In the meantime, Happy New School Year to all!
