Leveling books

Do any of my oh-so-wise followers out there have any suggestions about what I can use for leveling books in my classroom?  I am lucky to have leveled books in my room and a school bookroom but I am leaning toward wanting to start collecting some books into boxes by levels for some of my higher readers.  I also feel that it would help to give parents a better idea of the types of books that would be appropriate for their children.



  1. I'm in first and am doing genre bins and favorite characters/authors. When I was in 3rd grade I also did some leveled bins, but this year I'm opting out of those. I created a set of labels that are on a chalkboard background.

  2. I used the guided reading book by Fountas and Pinnell . But that was quite a few years ago so the books obviously aren't current. It's a great starting point though:)
