My Classroom Library

I always try to create a cozy little space for my library-but the arrangement of my new classroom didn't allow me too many options this year. I'm going to enlist the kiddos in sorting out the book bins and coming up with ideas of categories. Fingers crossed the tent withstands arrival on the first day! What do you think--are they ready for some literary adventures?!

Our kiddos come back Monday--I'm going to try and keep this in mind.

I have some really exciting activities planned this week-especially thrilled about the classroom community ones. Will be glad to have student work pics to post again-you know I will share how it goes! 

Good luck to all of you who are going back and congrats to those who have survived their 1st few weeks! I was tired just sitting through professional development-5 days straight for the kiddos and me is going to be hard work! :)


  1. Love it. Hope your week goes well. I don't get my kids until next Tuesday. What is your first read aloud?

    First in Maine

  2. Thanks Kimberley! I'm going to start with Elmer and then Each Kindness (an idea I got from Barb). Our first chapter book will be My Father's Dragon. I'm really excited-I hope the kiddos like them as well. :)

  3. Why do they hit us with Professional Development straight up and 5 days straight!! All we really want to do is get into our classrooms and get things ready for Day 1. Your library tent is gorgeous and the kids will embrace it. Hang in there your week will pass quickly. Nice to meet you.
