Love the steps you "show" on the video of re-organizing your library. Like you, I used to use "rough draft" labels for my library at first, even soliciting students to draw a picture and write the label themselves. Then, after a week or two, when the sticky note had nearly come to its shabby end, I'd present a beautiful printed label to the students, asking "Look what I found/make. Could we use this one for our basket?"
Question: After re-organizing your library out of leveled baskets, how do your students know the levels of books inside each basket. Are there a variety of levels in the baskets?
