My students are on a journey as readers to discover books that capture their imaginations. This could be the year that magic happens and they fall in love with books. Our classroom library is organized in such a manner, that allows the students to book shop independently and truly begin to develop a passion for reading. Library organization is extremely important when encouraging students to explore a variety of texts. Our classroom library is organized with colorful book boxes to house our leveled reading text. In addition their are books with green labels to indicated non-fiction and books with yellow labels to indicate fiction. Books that are marked with blue labels indicate that a book is a “bonus” book that students may check out during guided reading. My students haven taken ownership of our classroom library and make sure to return all the books to the rightful bin so that the next student can find the book with ease. The class librarian is an important role to have in our classroom and encourages students to take responsibility for their learning space. Students also have their own colorful book box to organize their books for Reader’s Workshop. They are able to organize their own books in their bin to ensure the book is taken care of while in their possession. The colorful, bright nature of our library environment makes our library a fun, relaxing place to learn to read.
