So, first up is my post about organizing your new classroom library. I hope you enjoy it!
When I moved into my new classroom, I was a little overwhelmed because there were a lot of classroom books! In all my years of teaching, I have had to deal with hardly any books so it was a good surprise. I just had to figure out how to organize them. A lot of the classroom books were already leveled, so I decided to have a section of leveled books for station time.
I found these book boxes in the Target Dollar Spot and they are pretty sturdy. They lasted all year and are still in great shape! I will definitely be using them again. I printed out some labels and glued them on using Modge Podge.
Here are the labels that I used for my book boxes. I hope you like them and can use them in your classroom.
Thanks for joining me for Day 1 and I hope to see you back tomorrow for Day 2!
