Daily 5 Read to Self and Classroom Library Organization

I use DRA (developmental reading assessment) levels to allow students to choose their “Just Right Books”. They are able to choose from the bucket at their level when they choose shopping during Daily 5.

I also have the students choose a few “Free Choice” books by genre. Here is how I organize these books.

I use pictures and words to show the students the genres, I change out the buckets every quarter with new genres. I have 8 different genres out at one time.

I use Velcro to stick each label on.
