Library Check Out

It's my last day of summer break!! Tomorrow it's back to work getting ready for the students to come a week later. It's just not enough time to prepare! One of the things I did to make my classroom organization a little prettier was to make this little book to keep track of the books my students borrow from the classroom library. In the past I have just kept it on a piece of notebook paper in my planning binder.
The library cards were obtained from our wonderful Foundation for Education. They run a store where everything is free for teachers. The supplies and funds come from business and individual contributions from the community. Of course, we have limits on how much we can take each month to ensure there is enough to go around. It doesn't supply all my needs, but it sure helps and I'm am so grateful to have this resource available to me!
I made a little folder just a bit bigger than the cards, then added a little pocket to hold the cards. Each student will have a card for their check outs to be recorded.
Hopefully, I'll get a little creative time in today before I head back to work tomorrow!


  1. This is such a great idea and so pretty at the same time. Love the oclors and the flowers. So creative. Have a great weekend.

  2. I used to love making special little decorative things to keep myself organized during the school year!! The excitement of the new year was always fun!

    This is fabulous, Lynnor. Bet you it will help get those books back on time!!
