CAUTION: New books!

A few weeks ago we had Fall Break and I was able to label and organize 20+ books for my classroom. I also purchased about 10 new (to us) books for my classroom.

I knew that I wanted to generate excitement with my students so I created this CAUTION sign!

I purchased black fabric from Hobby Lobby and caution tape at Target in the dollar spot (with the Halloween goodies). When students came back to school after Fall Break, they found our library like this: 

Y'all, they were SO excited! We previewed the new books before adding them to the library and they were SO pumped!

You could also do this when a Scholastic book order comes in, which would be another fun way to generate excitement! 


  1. Your crate of new books is so clever. I may have to "borrow" your sign idea! And I'm as bad as the kids. I get excited just watching them get excited about the books!

  2. Love the sign. Books are a serious addiction of mine as well.

  3. I love this idea! It provides not only interest and curiosity but will also get students excited about reading. I may have to "borrow" this idea in the future as well. This might even make the students that are not as interested in reading enjoy reading a lot more.

  4. This is a great idea! I will have to remember this for when I have my own classroom one day. It is a great way to get the students excited about reading!


  5. Great content indeed.
    Very Useful post.
    Thanks for providing it
