The Perfect Place to Store our Books!

My students need a cart and bins to help keep our book-sets organized and easy to access.

My Students

"Hey, where are the Mo Willems books?!" As a long-time primary teacher, I know that students tend to want to read what they like, over-and-over again. No problem, it helps build fluency...problem, they cannot find the book!

My students are motivated to read when they can choose favorite topics/authors to explore.

We are a busy school in an urban school district. Our classroom benchmark is diversity; we have ELL, Autism, Behaviorally Disabled, race, and socio-economic differences which we explore and celebrate. With so much diversity, we need effective organization tools to help us keep our books close-at-hand and ready to read. This helps us ensure that reading time is spent reading, not looking for the perfect book.

My Project

Have you ever found the "perfect" thing? If it is a shirt, a bag, or a pair of shoes, you sometimes buy two! I have found the perfect book cart to keep our classroom books organized and close-at-hand. It is a super-sturdy cart and it stores up to 16 book bins and easily transports them anywhere in the classroom! This metal cart has 3 racks and sturdy blue book bins that make it easy for kids to find, and put away, their favorite reading quickly.

This book cart is the best I have ever seen!

And, because I already have one, I know it is an effective classroom tool easily used by active first grade readers. Our current cart works well, and another one of these slick, sturdy, mobile carts would work even better!
