-A wide variety of topics, levels, subjects
-The goal is to have MANY books to meet all your students needs and interests
Where to Get Books:
(Without breaking the bank)
-Scholastic Book Club (sign up & start sending out book orders, gather bonus points)
-Garage Sales, Thrift stores, dollar store, discount stores
-Family and Friends
-Craigslist (Free section)
-Plastic bins I use these bins from Reallygoodstuff.com. The downside is, they are expensive.
-Paper magazine files work great! You can purchase these for very inexpensive at Ikea.
-Large Ziplock bags - Some teachers like bags if students have desks.
Storage of book bins should be easily accessible to students.
Book bins are labeled with names and reading
levels. Students keep 5 Just Right Books in
