Too Cool For School Linky Party

It is incredibly hot in Ontario, too! 40 degrees C with the humidex-YUCK! So, I am linking up to this linky party with I Love 2 Teach because I agree that it sounds cool.

At our Dollarama (dollar store) we can buy sheets of Avery mailing labels for $1 for 10 sheets of 30. Using MS Word, I have made genre labels for my books. There are two book labels on each shipping label...I cut them in half, stick the label to the upper right hand corner of the book and put a piece of packing tape over the label to "laminate" it. Now, the kids can easily sort the books and make sure that they stay together (they put the books in corresponding bins). I have to admit, it is a work in progress, but worth every minute! I am working on the same thing for my leveled Home Reading books. I am going to include the level and fiction/nonfiction designation. Click on each picture to see it in full screen...
