Now even more labels to help your students use the classroom library and to find good-fit books! My new library set up has been oh-so-dreamy and maintainable – books are ALWAYS where they belong! This add-on set will help students as they look within the baskets to find good fit books.
Please see my other classroom library labels
in my store in order to find out all about this system!
It’s a happy relationship of the two sister’s system that they share on their website, Beth Newingham’s idea for content-related baskets of books, and my own obsessive need to have everything put in its place! With the book label that exactly matches the basket, students know where all the books go! It has been a dream since I revised my library like this :-)
Note: you will need to purchase Avery labels to print the book labels unless you want to cut them out to tape on. I buy them locally at my office store, or they are also here
I do suggest that you print some of the sample file on your printer to test compatibility.
If you just want to label your library by reading levels, this set could work for you! I am using it to label books within baskets! But I started this set by thinking about what other helpful labels could be on the books for students, so here is what I included:
Buddy Books (for books you have more than one of – they can read together!)
Books on CD
Books on Tape
Books on MP3
Class Favorites (for when the class just LOVES that one!)
Retelling Books (for the books we spend a lot of time working on shared reading and retelling)
Special Gift (so they can look inside and see who donated the book to our class!)
Teacher Favorites (because every teacher has them!)
There are also Reading Level A-Z and Number Levels 1-30 and 34, 38, 40, 44, 50
I have included Basket Labels in case anyone wants to use the large version on a basket to group books this way. I use them in conjunction with my other labels, so my Dinosaur Books basket has all of the Dinosaur books with dinosaur stickers, but some of them will have a guided reading level ALSO to help them determine if something is just right. Also, I have two copies of Danny and the Dinosaur, so they both have a Buddy Books sticker.
If you have more ideas for these great helper labels, just post a question or email me at Jessica.firstname.lastname@example.org I am happy to add them before you purchase the labels!
***Now offering both pdf and Word versions of the book labels! The pdf ones do have the small circles around them when you print. I cannot guarantee that these circles will line up with the Avery labels (they should, but with so many printers and settings, I just can't make a guarantee about it lining up to the 1000th of an inch or so! :-) So they are great if you are just cutting the labels out and taping them on. When you print from Word, the circles are just part of the template and do not print on the page. If using the pdf version, please see the print settings file that will show you how to get them to print the correct size!
