Shelf Challenge - Week 2

This week was not a successful one for me with the Shelf Challenge.  Other teaching obligations, deadlines, a whole day visit to another school to experience their High Ability programs, a sick child, and you-name-its all got in the way. 

Excuses, right?

Well, yeah... 

But I'm feeling good about this challenge!  My goal is to get through 5 shelves during the month of April and during the first week I managed 2!  (That counts for this week's, right?!)

I know that I will be able to carve out a bit of time this next week for shelf #3 and will be able to get right back on track.  There are gems to be discovered and outdated books to weed.  

Onward and forward...reading!

Be sure and check out to see Mr. Winner's progress at his library as well as guest posts from other School Librarians participating in this year's shelf challenge.

  1. What a cool challenge! I'm trying to work my way through the boxes of new books I have stacked at school and at home. I'm finding some new favorites. I hope everyone at your house is feeling better!
