Sunday Shelves - My Classroom

I am weirdly facinated by other people's bookshelves and why they arrange them how they do. I took this and created a weekly feature, Sunday Shelves. In this feature I highlight the bookshelves of different bloggers and readers.

This week I thought I'd rerun one of my first posts showing my classroom bookcases

There are 500+ books for students to check out.  In these pictures you'll see the bookcases (4 of them), the area where I'll highlight books, reviews etc, and all the owl stuff I've bought to tie my blog to my classroom.  You'll also see my rain gutters.  These are at the front of my classroom, and they allow me to display books cover-side out.  I see students picking up these books more than any other ones in my room.  Lastly you'll see how I'm able to display my blog on the Smartboard in my room.

In my classroom my book are arranged alphabetically by title so they are easier to find.  That is if the students put them back in the right place :)

If you click on the little speech bubble on the bottom left, you'll see picture descriptions. Enjoy!


  1. What a FABULOUS classroom - lucky, lucky students!

  2. Wow, that makes me want to be in grade school again! What a special place you've made for your kids.
