Getting ready for CAFE reading

Setting up our classroom library was one of the very first steps in getting ready to begin CAFE reading.

We had a lot of books and a heap of baskets…..but how were we going to organise our library?

We decided on dividing the books into genres. First, we brainstormed a list of genres. Then, we went through all of the books in the classroom and matched them to a genre. Lastly, we organised the baskets and made labels for them! We think our classroom library looks great!


Something else we had to set up were our individual book boxes….

…then we had to talk about how we choose Just Right books. Just Right books are texts at our level and of interest to us.

This is a guide on how to choose Just Right books….

HAPPY READING πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
