Giveaway and Book Whisperer Read Along Starts Today!

Third Grade Gridiron reached 100 followers and is having a giveaway to celebrate! Check it out!

Don't forget that to Book Whisperer Read Along starts today! Check out Thinking of Teaching to see links for discussion.

I worked at my school today.  The library center is slowly coming along.  I now have all the books sorted in their baskets and about half of them totally completed with their pockets and index cards in them.  I am going to see my family for the next week but I am laminated a bunch of stuff (it is great to do it early in the summer before everyone starts laminating!) and I am taking it home to cut out and put Velcro dots on.  I will also be making some things for my classroom such as Classroom Helper labels and Genre Wall labels.  If anyone is interested I will post them as a PDF freebie on my TpT store.  I will keep blogging updates and ideas! Thanks for all your continued support and sharing of ideas!

  1. I so envy you for working at school this time of the year...if I went up now, I'd work every day and then when Aug. 16 rolled around, I'd be burned out!

    Fore genre posters I use Beth Newingham's

    and I love her themes posters

    The posters are already pdf file.

    This past year I just let students take books from the classroom library, but I found that they weren't always returned in the best shape. This year each student will have their own checkout sheet in the library. This year I had a student, whom I'd had 2 years ago, return books she found while cleaning her room...

    Although this is a Christmas party picture, you can see I have tall bookshelves (from our old library) where I have some books in baskets and other according to AR levels.

    Sorry for rambling along...
