New Centers in the Library

I am loving this month's centers. I'm introducing the centers to first and second graders as well.   I'm not sure which center is the favorite yet, but there has been a lot of interest in the 3D books and the "cool new books" center.

3D is the way to be

 The "Library Assistant" center may be my favorite because I got help stamping all our new books that just came in! 

The Magnet Word Strip Center

Library Go Fish Center

The Stick Stack Center! So Fun!
Sudoku Center is creating some genius problem solvers!

It's always nice to come back from a vacation day motivated and ready to be back at work. I sure adore these kiddos and love to see them excited and engaged in reading. I hope they love library as much as I love sharing time with them.

See you in the Library,

Mrs. Adams
