The Halloween decorations are down and some fall themed things should be going up in the next couple of days. I'm having the students color fall leaves so I can decorate the front of the circulation desk. Also, in my never-ending efforts to keep circulation up, and books flowing through students' hands, I attempted something new the last couple of weeks. I call it Musical Book Chairs. It is just a way to get books off the shelf for students to preview that they might not normally give a chance. It was a lot of fun since it corresponded with Halloween, so I got to play Thriller during library time! Students are still circulating through the Collaboratory with Mrs. Tipps as she continues to show them how to play with our tiny robot friends, the Ozobots. And, right now we have two new maker activities rotating through the Creation Station: a puzzle table and (my favorite-former English teacher here!) a Blackout Poetry station.
Happy Fall Y'all!
