I send messages to reading teachers to inform them that one of their students has a book on hold. I started writing these clever poems & vignettes. * = a student’s name –
A little bird flew into the library today and said, “KAW! KAW! KAW! KAW! KAW! KAW! KAW! KAW!” Luckily, I speak bird, so I’ll translate. She said “* has a book on hold, he has until MONDAY 10/03 to pick it up, or it will ‘KAW!’ to the next ‘KAW!’”…couldn’t quite understand that last part, but you get the idea.
*= Student with a book on reserve – this entry plays off of a previous message found HERE
It’s the bookcase again – The ravenous fervor you instill in your students for reading has produced another shelf-breaking hold. Please have * pick up her book by TUESDAY 12/6.
A held book message paying homage to a silly song from my youth –
Once there was this kid who
Came into the library at – Middle School
But when she got here
She couldn’t find the book she was looking for
* decided to put that book on hold
She has until WEDNESDAY 11/02 to come get it
Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm,
Gotta pay respects to the masters of rock –
* & *,
have books ready,
Put a hold on them some time ago
Now they’re ready to go,
Mrs. +…this hold has just begun,
From now they’ve got three school days.
make sure you tell these two,
If they’re not back again (in the library) this time TUESDAY 2/28,
The books will move on, move on to the next patron.
I send messages to reading teachers to inform them that one of their students has a book on hold. I started writing these clever poems & vignettes. * = a student’s name.
I was sitting on my chair,
On my desk there were no holds there.
I turned to a patron, “turn that book in if you dare!”
She didn’t have one book, but a pair.
When I checked them in I received a scare!
It turns out that, to wait in line and be fair,
Both * & * had laid bare
Their intentions to tear
Through these books when they came to their
Possession. They have until TUESDAY 3/6 if they care.
