Taking Care of Your Classroom Library


Back in June I went to the Scholastic Books Warehouse and walked out with a great selection of books.  I purchased about 50-60 books and only paid $85.  Sweet!!!!!  These books will be added to my classroom library, I'm bringing about 100 of my own books.  Because they are soft covered books I was worried about the condition the books will be in, once students start reading.  While browsing another teacher's blog (my newest hobby) I came across Mrs. Siegel's (The Teachaholic) method of making your classroom library last longer.  It's pretty simple and I thought of doing this, but it's oh so time consuming.  But I enlisted the help of my niece who happens to be home for summer break, to help with this project.


All you need is clear contact paper and scissors and your books will come out like this......

  1. Building a classroom library definitely takes time. Covering your books with contact paper will most likely be a life saver. I am your newest follower as well.
