    I am switching from K to 3rd grade this year. In the past, in Kdg., I have always organized my books by theme (fall, animals, winter, etc.) My question is, should I keep them like that or reorganize them into fiction, non-fiction, poetry, etc. My only concern about doing this would be if I need to find a particular book it may be harder to locate.
    Also, what on average, can a beginning 3rd grader read?
    Thanks for all your help in advance!
    :thanks:

    Beverly Cleary, Roald Dahl, Little House, Animals Ark, Unicorn series, .... it varies, though. I've had 3rd graders read Harry Potter.

    I have areas that are fiction and non-fiction, and then branch further from there. Like poetry, animals, astronomy - from there. That helps me when I need a book and also expedites time there selecting a book.
