Thank you to all the educators who have sent me photos and feedback about introducing the 5 categories to your students and inviting them to sort titles using the system. I love how Tamra Snell (@tamra_snell), a school librarian in Pflugerville, TX, created cards with the characteristics students should be on the lookout for as they classify books. See them in this photo?
And that made me realize that I should create slides to help both students and educators. Here’s what I’ve come up with.
