Organizing the books we make each week in class can be a challenge. I wanted something that would be easy, inexpensive and reusable. A box of ziplock bags, some labels, and a trip to Ikea was all it took. My room is shaped like a parallelogram, so the shelf under the whiteboard serves as the perfect spot to hold the book boxes. I would prefer them to be out of sight, but having them out in the open makes it easy for the kids to get to. Using the number system makes them reusable. The best part is they are 5/$1.99.
At the end of the school year, I give the kids their bag with all their books for summer reading.
