We finally wrapped up our Seuss-themed book fair on Friday, and, oh, the fun we had!
Our Seuss dress-up day was so much fun that our principal wants to have something like that every month. Woohoo!
My library assistant and I dressed as truffula trees. Hundreds of our students and many of our teachers dressed up as Seuss characters. One girl tied a stick on top of her head to become Max, the dog from the Grinch! Everyone who dressed up earned a pencil or eraser from the book fair, and we all had a blast!
Over the past week, some of you have sent me some GREAT book fair suggestions. I have to share them!
1) A special wish list for the littles.
Amy Bendall creates a special wish list for her kinder and preK students so they can circle their choices. She gave me permission to share her document, and you can see the full-size PDF here. She puts the hot titles for their age group on one page so they can have the freedom of "choosing" from an age-appropriate selection. Perfect!
2) To keep track of volunteers, Tonya recommended Sign Up Genius.
This is a free tool that lets you schedule your volunteers online. This would have helped me, instead of passing around a paper sign-up sheet. Do any of you use Sign Up Genius?
