It was great to get back to Pine Street after a week off. We had much to catch up on - Lee Anne reported the Scholastic Book Fair was a huge success and they are still settling back in after such a large event. After reviewing my internship checklist, I identified specific areas to work on over the remaining six days.
They find a word representing South Carolina for every letter of the alphabet.
Lee Anne and I had discussed my plan to have a lunchtime book club next week. When a 4th grade class stopped in to check out, I spoke with their teacher and she agreed to identify students to participate. We will do a "bring your own book club" and if it goes well I might have the students do brief blog entries about their favorites books.
I got to practice my training/supervising skills as Mrs. Williams left halfway through the day and the substitute had never worked in a library before.
It is hard to believe my days as an intern are down to single digits. This has been such a great experience - I want to make the most of my remaining time at Pine Street. To fit in: booktalks, lunchtime book club, Kindle program, graphic novel brochure, and more!
