Friends~I don't know about you but I battle every year with my class about putting books away properly. I don't care if I label every book with a matching book tub label somehow books end up where they shouldn't be!
I am now arming myself with my newest scam to get my kiddos to place the books back where they found them! I kinda borrowed it from the library. Check out my Book Back Marks!
I grabbed some door hanger thingies at the craft store yesterday. I love that they have a hole in them. I am going to hang them from our work carts at the end of each of my table groups. My students will ONLY be able to check out a book from our classroom library if they have their BBMs (Book Back Marks) I am hoping that we will be able to keep our classroom library nice and neat this year.
I have spent the summer grabbing tons of new chapter books for my 2nd graders. Check some of my stash out below! I can't wait to add them to our classroom library!
Be sure to check out my newest Novel Study Bunnicula! I do love the Bunny Vampire. If you are not familiar with this book you have to grab a copy for the month of October. Your class will fall in love with Harold and Chester. It is a must read in room 331!

I report tomorrow for meetings all day but I am hoping to get a bit done in my classroom. Wait until you see my fun Seat Treats for my kiddos on Meet the Teacher Night!
