I felt so frustrated that I did not get much accomplished last time I went to school! So I took yesterday to think and regroup. Yesterday I went and bought library pockets to attach inside the back covers of all my books. Today I started gluing them in and writing the titles on index cards. That way when a student wants to check out a book, he or she will simply take the index card from the book and place it in a pocket chart with their name on in. I got a few baskets done before I ran out of glue! Then I sorted through most of my books and relabeled the baskets by author and genre. I added stickers to the front of the basket and to each book so kids can replace books easily. Here are some pictures of my work (and all the work I have left to do!)
These are the baskets I completely finished
The baskets that still need their pockets and cards
Books I still need to sort
My closet- I still need to figure out how to organize my paper. Any ideas?
