Today was a whirlwind. We had six classes visit the media center. I spent time introducing myself to all of the students. Then, we shared a book together. Grades K-2 are hearing The Shelf Elf and Grades 3-5 are hearing Wild About Books. We have taken time to talk about taking care of our media center and its books so that it will be available for us everyday. Students were eager to checkout books. Many of them checked out our new books, while others found old favorites to check out again. In all, we checked out 222 books today. I was very impressed. Here are a few pics of students enjoying the first day.
