To Lexile or not to Lexile!

So, I have been knee deep in books for the past few days! I have every book I own and I am tackling the task of Lexile Leveling each and every one of them!! I thought I had this licked a few years ago when I went ahead and found the Reading Counts level for each of them!!

So, now that I am right in the middle of all this, I am wondering-

How do you organize your books in your classroom?

I have always had them by RC levels with a few baskets of series, authors, etc. I am leaning towards using Lexile Levels as my main baskets (thank you ELA Common Core Standards!) and then keeping my special baskets and adding non-fiction in the mix.

What do you think? I would love to hear from all you blogtastic teachers out there!!! And, hey by the way, while you are here go ahead and click on that little followers tab so I can have my first giveaway!!



  1. I am in the same boat with my books. In the past I had them sorted by genres, but am considering switching to Lexile levels.

  2. I am so glad I am not the only one taking the plunge!!
