On the day when everyone is celebrating love – I am going to celebrate book love. How lucky I am to be surrounded by it!
It made it onto my Valentine envelopes
I get to witness it all week – in Reading Workshop, during quiet reading and most adorably, during buddy reading with the Ks.
This week we wrote about our classroom library and one little reader’s writing was a beautiful gift of celebration of how much we love books and how much I love books.
I celebrate it here:
I like that in our classroom library, we never say there is too many books because you can never have enough books!! Everybody likes every single book because we have so many memories like reading with our friends or this is the book I read when I’m sad. Ms. Gelson always book talks books which means she’s adding more books to the library which also means we have to make room. Ms. Gelson bought a whole new shelf for nonfiction!!! By the end of this year, we’ll be drowning in books
You know how there’s a butterfly cycle and a blah blah cycle and all the other cycles? Well let me tell you about the book cycle. Step 1: Empty book shelf Step 2: Mediumish filled book shelf Step 3: Almost full book shelf Step 4: Full book shelf and finally Step 5: Drowning in books because there’s too many books. Sorry – you can never have enough books! And that is the book cycle 🙂
Maybe that book cycle doesn’t fit your teacher. If not, make your own up. I mean – that wasn’t made up though. But back to the point . . . That book cycle sure fits my teacher. She’s a little bit book crazy as in goes to the book store everyday!
Here is the author of this incredible piece of writing with her favourite book! (She does read it when she’s sad. But also when she’s happy or mellow or tired or . . . )
I wish all of you some love, particularly a little of the bookish variety!
I celebrate that I have a room full of books and wonderful readers to read them!
