Back-to-school prepping

Another back-to-school year is coming soon! I am here to help you out! These ideas can always be utilized in a library setting, too. So tweak whatever you need to.

Cool craft! Back to school buses!
This would be a cute keepsake, too.

Country Hill Cottage has a school supply checklist for middle and high schoolers. Link is HERE.

And Mrs. Winter's Bliss has a procedure checklist for teachers HERE.

The most important thing for me to do the first few weeks of school is to create a bond with my new group of students. One tool I rely on is books and story telling. This even works for the upper grades. I fondly remember my teachers reading aloud from chapter books to us in grades 2nd-5th.

Here are a few books I highly recommend for back-to-school.
