New Look for the Library and Linky Party!

I gave my library a new look! I love my new labels! I used scrapbook paper and labels. I was SUPER frustrated when I went to laminate them and the monster ate like 6 of them!! UGH!! But alas I whipped some more up and tadaa! I now have a new look! I think it matches the rest of the room pretty nicely. 
I'm really into using beige's and blacks with 
splashes of color all around.
I used Velcro to attach the tags to my baskets.
Do you like my sassy book shelves? I made them myself! I made 4 of them and then talked my dad into making more for me. :) In the past 4 years he has made several for me and my co-workers. They love them!
I like how the labels look with my CAFE board. 
This is my anchor chart for text to self connections.
This is the back side of my classroom. The books on this shelf are all buddy reading books. I have multiple copies of all of them. Do you like my READ letters?! I made them with plain wooden letters, scrapbook paper, and magnets. 

This is also a shot of my Daily 5 buddy reading chart that covers EEKK reading position. Elbow to Elbow, Knee to Knee!

Now for the linky part!! 
Ladybug's Teacher Files is hosting an anchor chart linky party and you should so type on over there and link up!! It just started tonight so there is plenty of time to get in on the action! Click on the picture below to check it out!

Thanks for stopping by and please leave a comment! 
I would love to hear from you!


  1. Cute labels! I am also thinking of replacing my library labels with new ones. Thanks for sharing!


  2. I am so, so happy you are back Julie. I really missed seeing your gorgeous classroom and reading all of your fabulous ideas! I LOVE how your room looks, the shelves your dad made, your label colors, your CAFE Board--EVERYTHING!!!

    Thanks for spreading the words about the linky--please come back and link up again with your other charts (I didn't know if you would see my message to you on my blog). Happy Saturday!

  3. I love your library! It looks comfy and inviting. I am super jealous of your wooden shelves. All of my shelves match but they are the white wire shelves from Target and a pain in the b-u-t-t sometimes.

  4. Your classroom looks beautiful. I'm very impressed that you made some of the book cases yourself!!

  5. Hey there! Thanks for stopping by my blog. :) I have a feeling also that I will love 3rd grade. Once I dive in, I'm sure I'll be ALL in! I love your blog...especially all the photos. Best of luck with the looping situation. I know some teachers who loop and they love it.
