Well, it's back to school time for me, and a big part of my classroom preparations involved "tidying up" my classroom library. I always have a ton of questions about how I organize my somewhat ridiculous collection of books--so I thought I'd share a little bit about how I get my library ready so that my students can really dig into their reading from that first week of school!
Here is my monster shelf of books...this is where a huge chunk of my collection lives...this and the "yellow spinny thing" that I inherited about 20 years ago from a retiring teacher.
Any books that don't have a specific bin get put on the regular shelves...these are a great place for students who are struggling to find a book to just "browse" to see if something captures their attention.

I hope you have a wonderful year of reading with your students...and have fun getting them as excited about book as I hope you are!
