Right now I’ve just started separating all of my books into categories (animal fiction, Dr. Seuss, Disney, weather, holidays, etc.). I’ve only been through one box so far and have 3 others to get through – I don’t have a large library, yet. I went through this process last year, but didn’t label the books so my kiddos didn’t know where to put them back. Lets just say the class library was in a bit of shambles by May. You live and learn, and I won’t be making that mistake again.
Once I get through the other boxes I’ll figure out which stacks can be combined and what types of books I may need more of. I will also pull books to go into a leveled library section, however I want the majority of my library to just be organized into categories so my kiddos get experience picking “just right” books.
So my question for you is, what summer teaching-related project or plans do you have?
