Organize My Library!

Help me give my students a way to organize our classroom library. I will be using these book bins to separate books by categories according to genre, series and author.

My Students

I work in a great school with some amazing students, however there is always a high need for materials and resources. The students in my school come from very mixed backgrounds and cultures. We have a high population of free and reduced lunch and an even higher number of ESL students. We are also a Title I school, which focuses on improving students' literacy and math skills.

My goal as a teacher is to instill a love of learning regardless of a student's cultural or academic differences.

I truly believe this can be achieved through many approaches, the most important being the teacher's confidence in each students' success.

Materials and resources can not always be provided by the families of the students in my district. Many families struggle and I want to help where and when I can. As their teacher, I believe it is my job to help set goals and help students reach those goals.

My Project

The book bins will be used to organize my classroom library. In organizing my library neatly and efficiently I hope that students will become more engaged in reading.

I will organize my library according to genre, author, various series and multiple themes to get students excited about a variety of reading materials.

These book bins will allow students to find the perfect, good fit book for them! Students will be able to browse the classroom library easily to find exactly what they are looking for. Having an organized classroom library is effective, useful and makes the environment much more manageable.
