Anyhoo, I do my best to keep all my students' supplies organized. One area that is a MUST for organization is my classroom library. I have 3 areas of books in my classroom for my students.
I have two display shelves that I switch out monthly. One of the shelves I use for seasonal books, and the other one has books related to the science or social studies topic we are learning about. I also put our class books here.
|The shelves are looking a little bare because my kiddos have scooped up the books and put them in their book boxes :)|
We use F&P levels at my school, so on the counter by my windows, I have a bin for each reading level in my classroom.
While my kids all know their independent reading levels, I don't what them to solely rely on their level when choosing books to read. Therefore, most of my books are organized by either genre, series or author.
I have two taller bookshelves that hold my magazines, fiction, and nonfiction books.
I'm guessing I'm in the extreme minority with a hippo themed room, so I've made my classroom library labels a little more generic as a freebie. It's an editable document, so all you'll have to do is type in what you want each of your bins to be called. The labels fit perfectly in the Really Good Stuff label holders, if you have them. For my bins that don't have these label holders, I just covered the entire label with clear packaging tape.
That's all for now! Hop on over to see Deirdre at A Burst of First for your next classroom organization tip!
