"This has made my library so much nicer!"
"Great resource! My classroom library looks great!"
"I can hardly wait to get started organizing my library! Thanks for your help!"
"You have made this so easy! Thanks!"
See how this project turned out in my class!! You'll LOVE it!!!
Have you been wanting to organize your classroom library, but aren't sure where to begin? NOW is the perfect time to dive in and tackle this project and THIS is the perfect resource to give you a gigantic head start and results you're sure to LOVE!
The ultimate classroom library organization kit includes 106 different, 3 x 3 inch labels for your book bins, baskets, or boxes (however you arrange your books will work!), and 58 sets of different labels for your individual books that are 0.6 x 1.5 inches.
I tried to include a lot of popular options so you'll have everything you need (you'd use most of them, but probably not all).
So here is what's included:
Book labels for:
Animals (if you like to think big, but if you like to be break it down...)
Books We Can Sing
More Fiction (the catch-all spot for your leftovers that don't really fit anywhere else, but are too good to not include!)
Seasonal and Months:
Summer Books (I lumped June, July, August here) :)
3 x 3 inch box labels include ALL of the above, PLUS these popular series labels in a black bordered option or a color coded option (purple = authors, orange = series, and blue = general topics). I feel it would be redundant to label the following series books individually because they already all clearly state the name of the series and have a picture of the main character on the cover, but they definitely need a special place in your library if you have them:
Magic Tree House
Magic School Bus
Henry and Mudge
Five Little Monkeys
Junie B Jones
Diary of a Wimpy Kid
Little House on the Prairie
Ivy + Bean
My Weird School
Nate the Great
Chronicles of Narnia
Nancy Drew and the Clue Crew
(Check out the free preview to see what the box labels look like!)
Please note that these pages are not designed to fit on a certain size of sticky Avery labels. IF you're a huge label fun though, you could easily print these on full-sheet labels, trim, and stick them on the books. I prefer to print on paper, quickly snip them up (everything is lined up so it's really quick and simple... you could totally recruit a parent volunteer to do this, get students to do it if they're old enough to cut neatly, or do it yourself while you're watching TV or something!), and then use packing tape to stick them on.
When I have just used plain labels in the past, they wear or peel off and I always end up taping over them anyway. :) If you want to make it last, use tape. To give you an idea of how long it takes, once the labels are cut out, I was able to label a box of about 50 books in 10 minutes. Pretty quick and very rewarding!
I am SO excited about this project! If you love organization, you're going to LOVE your results! You'll end up with a gorgeous library with no more misplaced books... even the littlest learners can match pictures and learn to put books in their proper places. Thanks for stopping by!
