Colored Dots

The leveled part of my library is divided into 6 different "Polka Dot" baskets. I teach 2nd grade and have a wide range of reading abilities (from 1st grade reading level to 5th grade).
Red - K/1
Blue - 1
Yellow - 2
Green - 3
Orange - 4
Lime Green - 5

Personally, I don't "graduate" the kids to the next polka dot basket, I allow them to let me know when they think they are ready. I let them try it and get back to me during a conference.

The other 80% of my books are categorized differently. I have baskets such as:
Animals (fiction)
Family
Friends
Mystery
Series (there are many of these baskets)
Authors (there are many of these too)
Poetry
Fairy Tales
Tall Tales
Tales from Other Lands
Jokes and Riddles
Magazines

I also have a non-fiction section:
Reptiles
Spiders and Insects
Endangered Animals
Animal Habitats
Sports
Famous People
USA
Foreign Countries
Money
Rocks and Minerals
Plants
Inventing
