UPDATE: Today I spent the day redoing my classroom library. I got rid of books (duplicates and old worn out books), and more importantly, I re-did my categories and organization. I split a lot of categories into more narrowed down categories. This allowed me to line up our classroom library more closely to our themes and units. For example: instead of 5 boxes of “holiday” books, we now have holiday specific boxes. There’s a Halloween box, a Christmas box, etc. This means more categories but things are much more organized! (And now I have no idea what number anything is! I used to be able to tell people exactly what box to find a book. Now I have to start all over! HEHE!)
And now, our current 2017-2018 classroom library set up! This year we’ve moved our library to the hallway in our classroom. This sets a visual example that reading is the first thing we think of in our classroom! And it frees up a TON of space in the rest of the classroom!
