I’m here to give you a quick peek at how I organize my classroom library. I have all of my books labeled with a sticker that corresponds to what basket it goes in. Some of them are sorted by the genre of the book and some are sorted by favorite authors. I don’t have my books sorted by level because my students choose these books as interest books. They have other (leveled) books in their book boxes that come from our school’s book room.
I have recently been organizing and labeling all of my books. Two of my teammates from last year retired, so I inherited a LOT of their books! (SCORE!) It has really been a lot of fun (but a lot of work) sorting, labeling, and putting them all into a database. So as a fun and cutesy project (which I LOVE), I decided to make labels for the books I put out for my kiddos. I Googled images for each category and put them all into a table on Word. Then I printed, cut, and glued each one to Safari themed cardstock. Then I laminated it to make sure it was durable.
