Book Fair Bonanza


My very first book fair is underway. I was tentative about the book fair. Usually the conversations I hear about book fairs are not positive ones. Maybe I am missing something, but so far it hasn't been a big deal. I scheduled a day for each of my ELA teachers to bring their students and they come with them and help me supervise. In the mornings, during lunch and afterschool I limit the number of visitors so I can monitor by myself. I have a few spectacular, trustworthy student helpers getting me through. The students have been really excited. This is the first fair we have had in a few years. I'm looking forward to seeing how much we make this week.

  1. I finished off my book fair last week -- the last one I'll do in an elementary library as I'll be moving up to the middle school library (yay!) in a few months. Book fairs are a lot of work and quite exhausting, but I find them to be so rewarding.

  2. It has been three days and so far, so good. The kids have really enjoyed it.
