Check out how many purposes this area serves! I love how the bookshelves on the left have pictures to organize the books too!
The struggle of trying to be organized! I feel you Miss Mini Mills (but I have to admit, you look quite organized. The labels and the book bins are awesome!).
Not only do we need to create all of the awesome book labels...but our job isn't over there, we actually need to try to get our students to put them back where they belong! I know some teachers have worked with their students on this by putting a label on the books as well, so they just have to match them up. But then you have to be pretty sure you won't ever want to switch up your labels...
Cheers to finding a student who can keep the books where they belong (And good luck!)
I love the laundry basket seating idea! I think it's important for kids to have comfy (and cool) places to read. In my classroom, the kids thought it was fun to just sit on a rug instead of in a desk. Whatever works!
Love @breezyspecialed 's idea to show our libraries! Mine is tiny because I'm in a tiny shared classroom, but the kids still love to read there! I transitioned to a leveled library this year (right hand side) and I still haven't figured out what to do with the books that can't be leveled (on the left). The laundry basket is for sitting in! It's their favorite ☺️
This is a great space-saving idea as well. If you kids can't handle a bookshelf (or if you don't have room for one), put your books in bins and take them out as needed. So smart!
I'm sharing part of my classroom library for @breezyspecialed #bsespedinspiration ! I 💗 books and so do my students! For years I had a proper bookshelf, but the kids had a hard time putting the books away properly. I stole the book basket idea from @autismadventures83 and it has worked out great this year! 😁📚❤️ #spedbooks #iteachsped #weteachsped #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers
I loved seeing all of these great ideas! I love using adapted books in my classroom. Read about how I adapt books and grab free downloads here. What does your classroom library look like? I'd love to hear about it (or see it).
