This product is a zip file which includes three different things:
1. a set of labels (Avery 5160) that has a page each of 18 different color stickers to use on books to categorize them
2. a Microsoft Publisher set of genre lables that has the same 18 colors as the stickers to label a book basket or bookshelf
3. a Microsoft Publisher paper version of the Avery lables that can be cut out and taped to the spine of a book or to the inside cover
Some of the genre labels are prelabled, but they are all formatted and editable. You can change the genre, color, size, etc. of the genre labels AND the book labels.
I used the paper version and edited some of the book lables to say "AR" for my books that are Accelerated Reader books. I taped them to the spines of the books so all the colors show while they are on the shelf and then I put the genre labels under the corresponding colors on the shelf.
These products could also be used for any other items that you want to color code...center activities, center supplies, reading group materials, etc.
