I am super blessed with a HUGE library for my first library. Move the tables, chairs and roll a few bookcases out of the way and the possibilities are endless!! Today was the first AR celebration (Accelerated Reader) under my "leadership". I wanted it to be BIG! The kids had bigger and higher AR goals than they were used to having, and I really wanted to reward those who worked hard to achieve their goal by READING!!! So...I turned the library into a "blow up" carnival!! We had a bouncy house, blow up obstacle course, and some carnival type games. The kids had a BLAST! Their faces when they walked in and saw the library transformed was PRICELESS!!! The gasps and eyes popping! ha! When I overheard a 5th grader walking past the next 5th grade class that was coming in say, "Ya'll better get ready to have some FUN!" I knew I had done ok! ;)
I am exhausted to say the least!! ha! And, so is Big Bear. So thankful he was my helper all day! Whew!
