I'm having a hard time today with writing a slice of life. I start writing. Then delete. I write more. And then delete. The stories are just not ready to be shared. I'm still finding the moments, the words, and the messages.
My brain is full of so much more. You know what I'm talking about. There is a lot going on during the end of the year. End of the year benchmarking. Team meetings. Documentation of instruction and learning. Celebrations. To do lists. All the while I try not to count down the days.
And then exciting news .... every school in my district is being blessed with a book room.
Late in the game, but the teachers are excited ... resources and leveled books at their fingertips.
Add it to my overflowing to do list. Creating a plan. Thinking about organization. Book bins. Shelves. Collecting books to start the book room. New books ordered for the fall. This is one item of business that is consuming my brain.
It's a BIG undertaking for my friend and colleague, Karen. But we are ready for this challenge! And we want it done right.
So ... can we ask for your help?
Feel free to leave a comment here, or share your thoughts or even a picture or two with me (@litlearningzone) on Twitter using the hashtag #FrostBookRoom.
Tell us about your school leveled book room.
What do you LOVE about your book room?
What would you change about your book room?
How is it organized?
How do you check out books?
How do you keep it organized?
Tell us your book room celebrations!
Tell us your book room struggles!
We want to hear it all! Thank you for your book room help!
Perhaps this will open space in my brain so that next Tuesday I can share a true slice of life.
