Keep Your Classroom Organised With a Book Trolley
If you’re a teacher and you mainly teach young children, the chances are you’ll have a story corner or library in the classroom. When everything’s organised it can look very inviting, but when it comes to kids and books, or kids and anything, really, it can be hard to keep things in order.
How to organise your story corner/library
Think about how to organise the books
Would it be easier for pupils to find books if they were organised by author or by topic? Organising alphabetically by author can help kids learn the alphabet and spelling, and organising by topic makes it easier for them to find a book they’ll be interested in
Show your pupils where to put books when they have finished with them
You’re a teacher, but you might feel like a surrogate parent at times, always clearing things away after the kids. Avoid this by finding a way to show them where the books belong, whether that’s with coloured stickers to indicate a particular genre or by labelling shelves in sections.
How will you display the books?
Will you use a standard bookcase or shelves, or choose a mobile book trolley that doubles up as storage and as an easy way to move books from one classroom to another if necessary?
Okay, so your books are organised-how are you going to keep them that way?
It can be tough to keep things organised with a class full of kids who leave books lying around or put them in their desk and forget about them, so here are some tips to keep your books organised for the entire term and beyond.
- When pupils have finished with their books, ask them to return them to the book trolley, so you can easily organise them, or put them back on the shelf.
- Even better, designate the job of ‘librarian’ to a different pupil each week. It will be their job to collect books and put them back on the trolley or organise them on the shelf.
