    Colored Dots

    The leveled part of my library is divided into 6 different "Polka Dot" baskets. I teach 2nd grade and have a wide range of reading abilities (from 1st grade reading level to 5th grade).
    Red - K/1
    Blue - 1
    Yellow - 2
    Green - 3
    Orange - 4
    Lime Green - 5

    Personally, I don't "graduate" the kids to the next polka dot basket, I allow them to let me know when they think they are ready. I let them try it and get back to me during a conference.

    The other 80% of my books are categorized differently. I have baskets such as:
    Animals (fiction)
    Family
    Friends
    Mystery
    Series (there are many of these baskets)
    Authors (there are many of these too)
    Poetry
    Fairy Tales
    Tall Tales
    Tales from Other Lands
    Jokes and Riddles
    Magazines

    I also have a non-fiction section:
    Reptiles
    Spiders and Insects
    Endangered Animals
    Animal Habitats
    Sports
    Famous People
    USA
    Foreign Countries
    Money
    Rocks and Minerals
    Plants
    Inventing
