    I usually pick a book sorter and have two scholastic bokes where children
    return books. To start you may want to have the whole class sort the books
    and then pick a student helper daily to put tthe books away that are in the
    boxes. My grade one\two class love it!

    Subject: [Channel-talkreadingk2] Book Bin?

    In watching the first video and read the articles, books bins are mentioned.
    Books are sorted by genres, themes, etc. How important is this
    organization? I have tired it in the past but they didn't stay organized
    for long. I thought I had modeled and taught the expectation but my 35, 2nd
    graders repeatedly mixed them up.

    I am wondering if I should have the children sort the books and set up the
    system again. This way they would have ownership. I'm sure it could help
    with time management and getting books into the children's hands faster.
    Help! Any ideas?
