The Sweet Life of 3rd Grade is having a classroom library linky party! I love looking at how other teachers organize their classrooms, so I knew this was my cup of tea! You should click her button above to head on over and sign-up too! Also, don't forget about my "My Teacher Always Says..." linky party going on below!
My library consists of 35 numbered baskets, each one with books on a similar theme, topic, genre, or by the same author. Each book has the same number on it so when the "librarians" go to put them away each week, they know exactly where they go!
Here's a picture of my main 2 bookshelves:
And here's the rest of my library! You can see some of my classroom games in this pic too.
Here's a close-up of my library labels, which you can download for free on my website!
I don't know where I got it from, but I always seem to arrange my library around my big meeting area... kind of like a big book hug holding us in on the rug! :)
On a side-note, I've had a very lazy day today... full of web browsing and blogging. To redeem myself, I will say that I vacuumed my house and mopped my kitchen floor. BUT... once when I got on Blogger today it was all different and now it's back to normal... hmmmm...
