I have been wanted to redo my library and debating on if I wanted to keep my library organized my genre or switch it to be leveled. However when I came across the wonderful files already created from Ladybug's blog I figured it was a no brainer and I have been working on leveling all my books using scholastic Book wizard as well as AR bookfind to determine the reading levels.
It's definitely a work in progress, but I am so happy to have finally taken the plunge to do it! Here are a few pictures of the books with the new labels on them as well as the library under construction ... We have a 1/2 day teacher prep day so hopefully I can get more done tomorrow and post some after pictures. Hope this link might be helpful to anyone else looking to level their classroom library.
