I organize as closely to how a library would as I can, so hopefully the skills that we practice in class, translate to students reading lives as they experience other libraries. For more info/pics see this post.

After I finish the inside labeling of the books, I put a colored dot that coordinates with each lexile range on the side of the book. Students have a bookmark in their bag with the colors of their "just right" books. Then they use a chart on the wall to match up the colors on their book changing day.
