I am addicted to Scholastic Book Clubs and have way too many books (if you saw all my books, you would think I was in need of an intervention), so I want to get those books organized in my new classroom this fall so my sweet Kinders can use them next year. I need some easy organization ideas. I can easily file away my favorites like Fern suggests, but that leaves me with way more books than I will ever need.
What is the best way to organize the rest for my class to use? I have seen so many posts about this in the past, but loved my organization at the time, so never gave it much thought. Now that I am moving into a much, much, much smaller classroom, I seriously need some ideas.
Did you post some ideas in the past you are willing to share with me? I am willing to buy some cute baskets (I know Lakeshore always has a sale in August. Does Really Good Stuff put theirs on sale? Do the Dollar store baskets hold up to wear and tear?) I have seen some cute ideas about labeling, but what about space saving ideas? Please share!
And if you have any other organization ideas for super small spaces, send them my way! I am ready to start fresh and organize! (I guess 10 years in one spot really was too long anyway, right?)
Now to a fun topic - Giveaways!
