When I was an English, History and Geography middle school teacher, I taught 4 classes of the same grade for each subject. I placed colored electric tape to the base of the spine of each child’s book – a color for each grade and a 2nd color for each subject. This helped me keep track of each class and subject when I took their books in for marking.
When I started homeschooling, Sonlight sent me neon-bright book label stickers with my first purchases. It was so handy to have the 3 cores’ books labeled in different colors. I also added numbers to the readers’ labels according to the different levels so that we could work through them in sequence.
Colored labels make storing, finding and replacing books on the shelves a breeze! Even my youngest easily searched the pink readers to find a book that she could manage to read.
Color coding works very well for young children. We assigned a color for each child and they could easily find “their” things in the basket.
I love practical ideas — whatever works to keep homeschooling organized and flowing smoothly! Trust that this practical tip helps you!
