Spring is in the Air!

 As buds become flowers and I witness other signs of spring, I am reminded that the end of the school year is right around the corner. If you’re like me, during the school year you have gathered many pieces of paper and pictures that together provide a glimpse of a variety of library and school-related activities. This month’s tip is from Gene Hainer’s AASL Conference presentation, “101+ Practical Ideas You Can Use to Improve Your Library Program.”

Keep a scrapbook or portfolio of your yearly activities. Include photos of bulletin boards, student work, class projects, awards, games and literacy activities, reading incentives, lesson plans, collaboration plans and debriefings. I have gathered items like these into an accordion file all year. The next step is to place them into a scrapbook/portfolio–a great volunteer project.  I have no doubt that I will use the scrapbook to reflect and plan activities for the next year. Happy Scrapbooking!
