Classroom Library

Clip to ScrapBook #1

Hello,

I used to organize my library by genre. I had a system set up with stickers and taught the kids how to use it. Books were often put out in wrong baskets and I found myself or with the help of another student re-organizing the library. Last year I taught only math, but this year we are going back to all subjects. I am trying to find a more simple way. I am even contemplating not organizing it at all. My students would only be reading books at school and not taking them home.
Thanks for your thoughts!

I organize by genre. Last year I gave each student 5 sticks (from Home Depot). They put the stick in the place of the book. When they returned the book they took the stick back.

It was the most organized my library has ever been, but it’s also the best class I’ve ever had so they’re probably not the best measuring stick.

We’ll see how it goes this year.

I organize by genre, series, and author.

I don't let students re-shelf books. They put them in a "book return" basket and I put them back when I have a few minutes. I usually have at least one super organized student who likes to shelve them for me.

Do you do Daily 5? Do they book shop for just-right books? That's my dilemma because they swap out books once or twice a week. I want them to be independent when they do this. I do not want to stand over them and I also do not want to reshelve books. I may just do something easier than I had or possibly nothing at all. I will have to see how much time I have before school. We start on the 12th of August, but I am going to a PD for 3 days next week.

Mine are by genre and then I break down non-fiction in some pretty broad categories, for ex...Animals, Reptiles, Canada, Math, Solar System.


I love the book return idea. I think I will use that next year...thanks!



Usually I just suffer through with returns to the wrong baskets and once every so often I have the kids help me sort. We do a classroom tidy and that is one of the jobs.
