Lovin' on my Library!

Do you have a favorite little place in your
classroom that just makes your heart smile?!?
I sure do!
It's my library that I have put lots of love into!

My classroom library got a huge facelift this year. It needed a pick me up -so pick me up it got! I am a huge lover of the Daily Five whose main philosophy is in order to learn to read you need to spend a lot of time reading books. Genius, right?!? I really wanted to create a space that kids are excited to come into, cozy up and dive into a book. 
My library houses AR books by level, a variety of series, books by author, many different book themes (fairy tales, math books, animal books, etc) and seasonal books. I think I need a book intervention! Here's how they all fit into this cozy little space!

I'm in love love love with that Dr. Seuss alphabet on my closet doors. Dr. Seuss' ABC book is an all-time favorite of mine so I had to grab these. I picked mine up at Michaels. Grab your own here!

When students are done with a book in the library they return it here. 
I could have them return them to their correct spots, but I know even though they are labeled they'll end up a mess. I love these kids, but generally they don't appreciate the art of organization {wink}.
I will have a school assistant or a parent volunteer put the books away each day.
I have them clearly labeled so things don't get all muddled up!

And one final shot just because this space makes me happy!!

The labels I used in my library are from my shop.

If you need a label that you don't see here please contact me and I'll try to add it =)
