This is a set of labels that I created to help organize my classroom library. There are 14 "genres" and 16 authors included in the full file.
Each label has a picture and text which match to an identical bin label. The first 30 pages print on Avery 2160 Mini Address Labels and the last 8 pages print on 8 1/2 X 11 paper.
I organized my library over the course of two days with the help of a first grader and a fourth grader; however, this could easily be done as a whole group lesson depending on the age of students involved.
I love our library system because I can find the books I need for a lesson with ease! My kids love our library system as it helps them find exactly the book they are looking for. By about mid year students are even able to make connections between the lessons we are learning and books they have read (and easily put their hands on the book to show us).
I am always looking for genre and author suggestions to add!
The following are currently included:
Fables and Fairy Tales
Poetry and Rhyme
Ezra Jack Keats
