Do you have books that don’t belong anywhere in your library? Well, I definitely did! There were several books that just wouldn’t fit into a category like I wanted, or I had several of that category already. So, I decided to start putting those books to the side until I had saved up a little over 100 books. This past year, I was able to take those 100 books and turn them into my “Book Buddies.” I can have up to 22 students in my class, so I made enough for a full class. There are 22 bags with 5 books in each one. My students take a new book bag home on Monday to read throughout the week. Here are some pictures of my book bags:
