I wish I had taken a picture before I started working on this project. There were stacks of books EVERYWHERE. It was chaotic. It was a mess. It was a challenge!
|Yes, this looks better than when I originally started sorting all these books!|
After sorting genres, I started to break down the books by theme/topic/author. I put another little sticker with the theme/topic/author written on it in the bottom-left corner of the cover. This way, my trained classroom librarians can easily return books.
|Some of the theme/topic/author tubs: Ghosts, Pirates, Margaret Peterson Haddix, Civil War, Gary Paulsen, and Dear America.|
|These little stickers are great! I put them on some of my books three years ago, and they're still on there, but easy to remove. So, they hold up, but don't leave a sticky residue!|
I'm excited to have a nicely organized library for once, and hopefully, with these detailed stickers, the students I train to be librarians can put them away correctly!
