Browsing Boxes

I am going to a new school that doesn't have browsing boxes in their classrooms. I love mine at my old school and want to get some for my new classroom. Does anyone have any idea where to buy (for cheap) nice magazine file storage boxes that I could use for browsing boxes? I saw some on IKEA, but of course am no where near a store!

What are browsing boxes? Are they boxes that you put books for self selected reading??

cheap book boxes

I got a set of 20 book boxes (a little wider than magazine files and not as tall) for my classroom last year for about $20. I can't remember the catalog I ordered them from but I'll be in school next week so I'll see if the secretary still has my order form from last year and I'll get back to you.

For those interested, in my classroom browsing boxes are where my students keep the books they have read in their guided reading groups (aka independent reading). After they have read a book twice in group and once at home it goes in their browsing box. We do independent reading as part of our morning routine when they read their favorites from the box and they pick one book from the box to read as a "warm-up" at the beginning of their guided reading lesson.

I have a cheap way to make browsing boxes. The students bring laundry detergent boxes with the plastic handles on them and I cut off the tops and cover them with contact paper to use in my classroom. I also use larger cereal boxes, cut them down and cover them with contact paper.

Last week my coworkers and I were in IKEA (en route to a workshop) and found white cardboard magazine files for 5 for $2.99. We each got a class set (20). Don't know how we will use them yet, but we thought it might be fun to let the kids decorate theirs with markers, since the files are white and paper.

Just a note, due to lack of space I use ziplock bags for my browsing boxes, the kids keep their bag in their chair pocket. Just an idea for those who don't have much space for a class set of boxes.
