the things we do

[Carly and her newly decorated locker]
Carly came home from school with a backpack full of text books and a book inspection form to fill out. The new thing, I guess, is for the kids/parents to do their own inspection and document damage so that you don't have to pay a fine at the end of the year. I clearly remember the teacher sitting at the front of the room checking books and writing your name in the front. After we finish the inspection and the form, Carly asked me "hey mom, have you ever heard of wrapping your book in paper?" They have always used book socks to cover their text books. She thought she had heard about a NEW fad! So now she has a newly papered locker and newly covered textbooks. Maybe she is ready for actual school work next week!

I used to have students who loved to decorate their lockers like that too!

Decorating my locker and covering my text books were both big highlights of junior high for me. She's lucky she gets to do that in 5th grade!

Did you use the "funny papers" to cover the books. Do they even still have that section in a Sunday paper??
