So it is Saturday night. I am sitting in my quiet house as my children and husband are all fast asleep. No, it’s not late, they all were in bed at 8 pm. I am too old to be a night owl! Anyways, I am halfway through reading Notebook Connections by Aimee Buckner, which has a lot of great ideas! I am alternating between reading and hoping and praying that I hear back from a school I interviewed at on Friday. I am in LOVE with the school and I really, really want to get the position! I just want Monday to get here! Not only will I hear back from the school (one way or the other), my dad will be here!
Back to my point…
I was also sitting here thinking about how important it is for students to read. Free read. Read what ever catches their eye. I am a huge believer that every English classroom ( as well as all other classrooms, no matter the subject) should have a good library. I have picked up books here and there lately, when I can find them for $3 and under. I am working on getting a good library, but also being a first year teacher I need to spend money on other things for organization and whatnot. So needless to say my classroom library is starting out very sparse. So this is where you, my awesome readers come in.
How do you stock your classroom library?
What hints, tips, suggestions do you have to acquire books for cheap, like really cheap…or free. Free is good.
Also…I take donations 🙂
