A few weeks ago we had Fall Break and I was able to label and organize 20+ books for my classroom. I also purchased about 10 new (to us) books for my classroom.
I knew that I wanted to generate excitement with my students so I created this CAUTION sign!
I purchased black fabric from Hobby Lobby and caution tape at Target in the dollar spot (with the Halloween goodies). When students came back to school after Fall Break, they found our library like this:
Y'all, they were SO excited! We previewed the new books before adding them to the library and they were SO pumped!
You could also do this when a Scholastic book order comes in, which would be another fun way to generate excitement!
