Amy, over at Literacy and Laughter, is hosting a linky party on classroom libraries. Be sure to head over there to check out all of the other great photographs of how teachers organize their books in their libraries.
Here are a few pictures of my classroom library.
|Red baskets contain nonfiction books separated by genre.|
(Biography, Autobiography, Informational sports, informational science, informational social studies, informational animals...)
|Clear baskets contain fiction book separated by genre.|
(Realistic fiction, fantasy, traditional literature,
historical fiction, mystery, poetry, picture books...)
|Book recommendation bulletin board|
inspired by Beth Newingham
I have to say, I am pretty addicted to buying books for my classroom, just like most of you. There is no more room for any new chapter books and no more space for even one more book basket. I guess I'll be buying a new bookshelf this summer because I know library will continue to grow.
