Happy Friday! I hope you have wonderful plans for the long weekend. As for my wife and I, I think we are "stay-cationing" for the weekend!
I wanted to let you know that I've posted a freebie in my TpT store! You can click the little button over there on the right or follow this link to download my IPICK Bookmarks. I tried to post a nice little picture of them on here, but for whatever reason, they were coming out really blurry. So, just click the link to get your freebie!
Next up... I've been waffling back and forth on how to organize my classroom library because it seems every year I start a system I think will be good only to have it fall apart half way through the school year. I went out in search of blog posts on the subject and one in particular led me to...
Anyhoot... I just spent the last day or so cataloging 393 books by scanning the bar codes with an iPhone (free app also available for Android) and now I have a spreadsheet with titles & guided reading levels. How cool is that?! What is more, you can create a class roster and have your students check out your books using the online tools! It's definitely worth a look!!
Finally... I got to visit my new classroom the other day! I thought I'd post a few "before" pictures for you guys.
|Maybe where my classroom library will be?|
|I'm thinking is will be my "meeting" area for Morning Meeting and minilessons.|
|I have a sink! Woot!|
|Cubbies with additional storage up top! Score!|
|This will be the CAFE menu for Daily 5.|
So, I guess that's it for today! Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend! Be sure to show your appreciation for our military this weekend! :)
