I have an insane amount of children’s books. I think most former teachers do. Until recently, they were boxed up because we really didn’t have the room for them. When I was looking for a specific book to use with Jonah, I would have to go digging and end up frustrated. It just wasn’t working for me, especially as I planned out “Mommy’s Official Preschool” and worked to transition us into a more structured learning time. Plus, the kid LOVES books and it was past time to rotate our book basket.
So, thanks to Ikea and their great prices, my books finally came out of hiding! This organization project was no small feat. I knew that it would drive me crazy if they weren’t organized into categories. In my Kindergarten classroom, that was the way they were organized, and my brain still works that way when I try to find a book.
So I sorted…
and sorted some more.
My books that had been hiding in the basement thanked me for letting them come out to play.
Now, to figure out a solution for the rest of my school boxes…and convince Mr. HBH we need to travel 2 hours to Ikea again.
