I just discovered The Sweet Life of Third Grade (I love discovering new blogs and have become somewhat of a blog addict!). Mrs. E is having a linky party for classroom library pics. I have a portable so I don't have alot of room for bookcases. However, after reading Debbie Miller's book Reading With Meaning I learned that you should have books everywhere. There doesn't need to be just one spot designated to books. So I have 2 main bookcases in a corner of my room. And then I have a short book display rack in front of my desk and crates with baskets of books under my dry erase board. I have so many books that I have to switch some of them out half way through the year. I have my books organized by genre and favorite authors so that my kids don't get too caught up in trying to pick books from "their" level bin only. Here are my bookcases. I don't have pictures of the rest of my library right now. But I will upload them when I do. Notice the camping chairs. My kids love them! I write down 2 numbers each day and the kids who have that designated number get to sit in the chairs for the day.
