Your library is outstanding! This is my 2nd year back teaching 1st grade, after having taught grades 2,3, and 5 for the prior 12 years. The former teacher in my classroom also left loads of books. I have them all leveled, however, I'm having problems trying to come up with a way to attach the labels to the baskets. I do not have the various colored baskets, rather the white Sterilite baskets in the small and large size. In the past you mentioned using the self-stick diskette covers, but I can't find them anymore. Sometimes I also find the need to change books into different baskets depending on which unit of study we are working on. (We use the Growing Readers by Kathy Collins book.) I've been connecting laminated tagboard or index cards to the baskets with computer ties, but I wish there was an easier way! Any ideas would be much appreciated. You are a truly amazing woman..to have 2 young children at home and still keep up such a wonderful classroom and blog! Blessings on you!
