    I don't have this one, but I looked at it at School Aids. A co-worker had asked me to pick up a calendar pocket chart for her. They were out and I was looking at this one to see if it would work. The one I looked at had similar pocket depth to a calendar if that helps. (We tried numbers in them and then saw the second pocket for names. That's when I knew it wouldn't work as a calendar. lol)

    I do not have that pocket chart, but I can suggest an alternative. I had a pack of the library pockets with sticky backs. I stuck enough for my class to the inside of a cabinet. I used packing tape to tape over the front and I write their names on the packing tape with a vis a vis marker each year. I've used it for two years and it works great. And it's out of sight when no one is using the library.

    Cheery, I did something similar, except I used a posterboard on the back of the file cabinet that was next to the library. It was ...sort of out of sight. lol Right after I put mine together I found the cute pockets at School Aids. Now, they have so many cute designs for them.

    Yes, but the small pocket for the students' names made it a challenge to see other student names when I tried a 3x5 card (I had the same idea last year). Maybe you'll have better luck!

    Last year I repurposed an older pocket chart that I cut in half, taped, and used for a library check out system.

    This year I had just enough left over library book pockets to make a library "board" check out to put near my library books; it actually looks better and I got to use the colors from my classroom in it. =]

    I find it works. The way my school schedule works out my kids only get 15 minnutes of silent reading at the beginning of the day. I don't need anything that would need to be accesible throughout the day. Once every week or so I go through the pockets and make sure students have put books they don't need back in the library.
