Many of us have our classroom libraries organized by author or topics, but do you have so the kids can manage it? Last summer I spend time coding my library so that students knew exactly where books when. Each theme has it's own book box, in my case a magazine file, along with a matching label. Then all the books in that file have a matching sticker. So the kids can put the books back exactly where they go! I made these labels super quick in my word processor using 5160 labels! This also works great for subs, I leave in my sub plans to pull a book from my alphabet box in the library! There is never any question where books go, I don't have to spend my time reorganizing year after year, and I can always find the books I need!
Judy over at Kindertastic does the same thing and posted her labels online! Be sure to grab them! (I could not find mine.) Thanks for sharing Judy!
