Booksource Class Library Website
Below are a few pictures of my class library. It is one of the few things that stays consistently organized in my classroom. I have set it up in a way that the kids always know how to put a book back. Thanks to the wonderful jmeacham website, I labeled my book bins a few years ago. I used her labels, glued them on 3x5 cards, and taped them on plastic shoe bins with packaging tape. My kids always struggled to know what category some of our stories fell into when two or more made sense (such as "silly stories" and "animal fiction" work for Duck on a Bike). I started putting colored dots on the back of each book and on the front of each bin so the students could match them. Each dot had one or two words such as "silly" or "science."
