I am excited to share my reading life with my new readers. It's fun to xerox some of the covers of the books I read this summer. The minute my new students arrive they will know their teacher is a reader. I also include a few personal photos of my reading life and favorite places I like to read.
For years, I spent hours getting my library ready. Not anymore last year's class organized this library. Mixing all of the books up leaving serval hints about how this new class could organize it. One of my favorite conversations:
- "Do you have this book?"
- I reply, "I sure do in the library"
- "Where in the library?"
- I reply, "I don't know."
Conversations above lead us into a class discussion about how do you want to organize the library? Thanks to Ruth for encouraging us to celebrate.
