Monday Made It {June 28th}

Happy Monday! It's time to link up with Tara at Fourth Grade Frolics for Monday Made It.
This past week I focused on my classroom library. I went through every book I own and decided which ones I'd take with me, which ones I really wanted to keep (just in case I ever teach a lower grade, and which ones I'd donate to a friend of mine who is also a teacher.
After I organized my books, I created new labels and put a sticker inside every book I'll take with me to my new school.

 
I also have about 20 mentor texts that I will keep to the side to use to teach various strategies. I created labels for those as well and put them inside of the front of each book. 
 
It doesn't look like much, but it was a huge task! I am so glad to have matching labels in every book.

  1. That is a huge task and dream of mine....we can't go in our classrooms over the summer and then when we can it's all I can do to get set up before open house:/ Someday....my library is a hot mess! Thanks for linking up:)

  4. This is a major undertaking! I tackled this last year at the beginning of the year. I purchased quite a few new books at the Scholastic Warehouse sale in May to add to my library for next year. I can't get into the classroom until August 3rd, so I think I'll have to tackle it again when things are crazy!
