CLASSROOM  LIBRARY ORGANIZATION



OOppss   I DID  IT  AGAIN!

WHAT???

Yes ..I  DID!

What  did  I  do??

I redid my classroom LIBRARY! 
 AGAIN!

If you read my last post on my
classroom library...
you know, I TRIED TO INCLUDE THEM!



https://1stgradefireworks.blogspot.com/2017/04/my-lovehate-relationship.html

My ATTEMPT was to allow my first graders to
share the love of my library 
...by HELPING to sort, label, and bookcase the
classroom books.

In the "big" picture..
Good thought.

REALITY...

NO  WAY!
They are seven!

Their idea of ORGANIZATION is 
"if my shoes are tied, then I can go to recess!"

First.....Then...Last!

So...start over!
I need a "redo"... a "mulligan"...
A  MAJOR  DO-OVER!

So..Here I go.

FIRST,

HOW much shelf space do I really have for tubs?

How many tubs will "fit" on the shelves?
How many books will fit in each tub?

This will determine the number of labels for the tubs.

I ended up with 

36... YES! 

 36  LABELS!

WOW!

So...NOW  WHAT?

I labeled ALL of my tubs.
BIG LABELS!




Then..

I printed the SAME labels 

BUT ...smaller...POSTAGE STAMP SIZE!

I printed 9 SHEETS to a page!
WHAT??   WHY??

Because...then I have the EXACT same picture
 on BOTH the TUB 
and the BOOKS!

MATCH the book label to the TUB label.


(Yes..SPOOKLEY is in the PUMPKIN tub! )
* Makes my TEACHER HEART happy!

How do YOU get them?

Take a picture ( on YOUR phone...), OR
 go to PINTEREST, OR
... TPT

:)  


PRINT...

Tape 
( or print on Avery address labels)
to your tub & books...

AND  VOILA!

  DONE!

My NEWEST LOVE!


I got mine at AMAZON!

*I did NOT receive compensation for this. I just LOVE it!

A few of my tubs are seen here ...
 on the bookcases.



More here...on bookcases.

And so...I hope you are ready to
ORGANIZE those BOOKS!

After all...it's about getting books into kids hands
AND THEN...
PUTTING THEM AWAY!

Have fun!
Stop by next MONDAY for MORE!
