Our Graphic Novel bookshelf will not look this full again until May, when all books have been turned in! But that is OK! :)
Our Texas Bluebonnet book display will not look like this again, at least not until after voting! In fact, as 6th graders came in for checkout on Friday, many of these books left with them. But that is OK! :)
The display of some of our favorite chapter book series will not stay neat & nice like this. Books will be askew, the Ivy & Bean dolls will move around, and bins will be empty. But that is OK! :)
I'm OK with all of this because this is only a fun place when students are in here, checking out books, talking about books, creating, collaborating, and connecting! This is not a museum, with books on display. Displays are meant to be taken apart. I love when students ask if they can checkout a book on display. PLEASE, YES! Take a book from the top of the shelf! That is my goal when I put that book there!
So, welcome back! Come in often! And, yes, please, mess up the displays!
