I saw this idea and made it my own. Each student has two sticks (one yellow and one blue). My kids are allowed to only have two books out of my classroom library at a time. So when they take a book they put the stick in it's place. This lets me quickly see who is reading, and what they are reading (my library is set up by genre, author, and series). I don't have labels yet, the ones I used before are too big. dandelions and dragonflies: An Oregon Classroom Reveal!
