You saw the “before” picture. This is a “during” picture. These are some of the books for my classroom library sorted by author.I found out that I had enough Gordon Korman trilogies (Everest, Island, Dive) and other series to make a separate basket of those. Over the last two years my students have loved dogs and horses, so my “animal” book collection has grown enough to rate a basket of its own, too. And so on, and so on, and then I sorted by reading level. I have a pretty good variety — everything from late 3rd grade to 7th and 8th, which is just right for a class of incoming 6th graders who might have all kinds of different reading abilities.
The plastic is off the furniture now, and I’m working on putting the room into shape. I’ll share pictures when it’s done…if I have time to take any!
This is a very exciting time of year. I feel like I made enormous progress today getting the room in order and putting away the clutter. I saw my class list, and it looks like a wonderful group. I can’t wait to see the families come to Open House on Tuesday!
