So here is my quick tip and Freebie for you. It is no secret that I have a HUGE classroom library. It rivals our school library on some levels.
My library gets a lot of use and my books are well loved. Therefor I needed a system to keep my kids from bringing me books that had torn pages, ripped covers, writing or other issues. I created a book hospital. This is where books can go to be repaired. Students simply place the books into the basket. This eliminates the need for them to tell me. I can assess the book later.
When parent volunteers are working in the room, I have them repair the books using book tape and a special swing arm stapler. Just click the picture below and you can download the sign from my TpT store.
I will have more tips and Freebies all week. Keep coming back!!!
