    Looks very nice! :) I love the color combination! Where are your shelves from, or did they come with your room? I need another shelf and those look perfect!

    I LOOOVVVVE the colors of your library. If I didn't already have about a million primary colored baskets, I would get those cute, bright colors!

    Looks so good... I hope you're proud!!

    This may be a dumb question, but I am not an elementary school teacher. Do you guys have to buy the books for your library or are the given/donated to you?:confused:

    Looks good, BTW

    It really depends on the school. Both of the schools I've worked at give you "some" books. (Not really enough to start out with) All of my other books I've either bought (book clubs/garage sales/ ebay) or had donated by teachers who were leaving.

    All the books are leveled. I had my little 11 year old sister level all of them. It's great when she did it because it went pretty fast for me. She did great too

    The books were all donated and purchased :)

    I am working on the rest of the classroom today and tomorrow. I have to go back to Boston for a few days and when I return I will work more. I am hoping to be done by Tuesday. NTO starts on Wednesday and I want to be done with my classroom.

    Wow! Your library is the greatest. It is colorful, leveled and organized. That took a lot of persistence. Glad you shared the pictures of your library with us.

    It looks great! For the person who asked if teachers have to buy their books... we get lots from Scholastic points, too. The more our parents buy, the more points we get for free books for the classroom.

    What? An 11 year old leveled the books and I cannot figure out how to do it. Hahaha! She's what, a 5th grader? That explains it, I'm NOT smarter than those brainiacs :D

    All kidding aside, I do not know how to correctly Level my library. Pointers?

    I thought some of those books looked familiar!! And so does the rug. I wanted to get that rug at Big Lots if they had it in the blue shades, but they didn't. Your colors are beautiful.
