Beth, I am always jealous when I see your classroom -- it is so big! :) I am squished in with 29 children all day this year (and 33 during math!) with 5th graders. Sometimes we feel a bit like sardines.
I love your ideas and have adapted your library ideas and your reader's notebook to my own classroom. The children are slowly coming to learn how the notebooks work and I love it for the accountability, especially since conferring with 29 children is way more time consuming than with only 21 or 22!
