I will be completing my student teaching in Kindergarten soon, and recently accepted a teaching position for Kindergarten for the upcoming school year. I'm seeking suggestions on how to build a classroom library/getting resources for my classroom. Any suggestions on where to get books for cheap/classroom materials? Any other suggestions/tips/advice for a beginning teacher or tips for setting up/organizing a classroom would also be greatly appreciated :D

Thanks in advance!!!!
