Yday evening I thought I would rope in my 'A" group of students to help me stick labels in the books donated by various people. I thought I wouldn't be chauvinistic and get the boys in too. ( mistake)
It all started off in a very organized way with sets of books, newspapers, paste , cloth and space for each child.
But as the evening wore on, everything changed. I was kept very very busy responding to requests - where do i stick this; he's taken my books; give me some more.. and so on..normal where you have a bunch of kids.
In spite of labels stuck upside down, pages stuck together, all my careful classification of books, the room becoming a terrific mess and total exhaustion, I went to bed rather pleased. Because they did read the books inbetween and asked questions ( is this a volcano) and that is the ultimate aim.
