Today I am sharing how I organize my A-Z Readers that I use for guided reading groups.
I have two of these Sterilite containers that house all of my readers. I made labels for each of the drawers to quickly find the levels that I need. The green one on the right was a steal at the local bargain shop. I think I bought it for $5!
I don't know about you but I love using Washi Tape any way I can think of. I have quite a bit in my collection.
Choose a particular color for each level.
I simply code each book with that color. I know little fingers will want to peel that tape off, but prep them ahead of time that they will have to deal with your WRATH, after you so painstakingly labeled each of those books!!
To separate each section in my drawers I used a file folder and cut it down the measurements of the drawer. I labeled it as well.
I have 6 copies of each book and rubberband them together. I can quickly find leveled books and keep them organized and neat.
It really didn't take long to set up. My colleagues who borrow these are very appreciative of the system!
I hope this is something that will benefit your classroom needs, or that it sparked an idea for organization.
Up next Brooke from Teachable Moments has some great websites to use in your classroom!
