Today's Topic: Library Organization!
This post has been planned in my head for a really long time....some of the picture you'll see are from my classroom last year!!
Thanks for the opportunity for remembering to write it! ;)
I store all my books in the $1 clear shoe bins (sometimes, I just leave the lids at the store...I would throw them out anyway!)
I love them because they store a lot of books, are easy to see through, and fairly sturdy.
My books are organized by genre, subject, author.
My class last year had a lot to do with the organization of the library. Before them, all I had were picture books-so they got a lot of say in what I bought and how it was organized.
Each genre, subject, author has a different sticker. The sticker on the book matches the sticker on the bin
On the inside cover of the book, I have my name in the top left corner. On the bottom left corner, I have the Guided Reading Level and Grade Level Equivalent. (for the books I was able to find the info for)
This is the library I had last year:
This is my library this year...
See a difference? I've definitely add and refined since the first picture was taken. I have a bit of a book buying problem. :)
How is your library organized?

I did have on my blue open cardigan for the day- but those picture came out blurry. :)
Today was field day (yuck!), and it was 1/2 day (less than-we got rained out), so I was left with 2 hours to teach something. I'll share what I did later...they really enjoyed it!
Smiles and Sunshine,
