Well, it’s been another mish-mash week of things in the library this week (things can get a bit de-railed when I am needed to cover in classrooms – but it’s certainly been an interesting two weeks.
The end of November saw me covering history classes in the Upper Years (it was good to be able to brush up on my history knowledge) and spending a day in grade 1 (where they were so kind as to perform their Christmas Concert song for – I think you’re really going to enjoy it!).
And just like that, it’s December!
Did you know that December 1st started Cookie Cutter Week? December 3rd started Cookie Exchange Week. December 4th was National Cookie Day. And this weekend (Dec.8) is Gingerbread Decorating Day! Hmmm – I sense a theme. Guess what I’m going to be making this weekend?
Sunday, December 2nd also marked the first Sunday of Advent for those who observe the season. May the season bring you all HOPE. Sunday also marked the first day of Hanukkah. Happy Hanukkah!
Monday and Tuesday, I was covering in Ms. Arandia’s grade 4 class. We had two very busy days.
Wednesday and Thursday was back into The Library, complete with class visits, story times, Recess Readers, and continuing the collection development process of turning our library into the best library possible.
I did take a short break to go visit the Grade 5’s Museum Exhibition (I love museums!). I was truly impressed with the artifacts the grade 5s created and I even learned some new ancient civilization facts I didn’t know before. I have always found ancient civilizations fascinating and having their exhibit this week seems apropos. Did You Know – Tomorrow (Dec. 8) is Pretend You’re a Time Traveler Day. If you were a Time Traveler when would you travel too? (share in the comments if you like).
Friday I ended up covering in Ms. Blair’s SK class.
Our Pinkalicious Tree is all lit up and filling up with beautiful decorations.
If you still want to make a book/story inspired ornament to add to the tree you are more than welcome to. If you’d like to have your ornament considered for the “ornament contest” please have it on the tree by Monday, December 10th.
Tomorrow (Dec.8) also marks Bodhi Day. I would like to wish those celebrating a Happy Bodhi Day!
Have a great weekend!
