Organizing Your Classroom Library: Basket Labels
- Grades: 3–5
It's important to organize your classroom library in a way that allows students to easily find "just right" books that they are interested in reading. To stay organized, all baskets in my classroom library have a unique label that tells a reader what type of books they can find inside. The basket labels vary based on the section of the library in which the basket is located.
• Nonfiction basket labels reveal the topic students will find inside.
• Fiction picture book and chapter book labels reveal the basket's genre.
• Chapter book series baskets reveal the name of the different series a reader will find inside.
