Labeling Shelves

I wanted to start labeling my shelves last year but... time just got away from and I never got around to it. So I ordered some shelf marker from Demco in August and started labeling last week. 

They don't fit my bottom shelves exactly right but I'm going to try leaving them the way they are for a week or so and see how they do. If I have too I'll move everything up. I hope I don't have to do that though because I don't want too see the grey stripe on top of my shelves. 

I started in the Everybody section and the lower grade students haven't seem to noticed them yet. I'm excited to see what my upper grade  students think once I get the Fiction section finished!

As usual I missed calculated how many I needed so I'm going to have to buy more. It's embarrassing that I taught 6th-8th grade math for 4 years and I can't count shelves right!


  1. I love that feeling when your organization comes together and it looks the way you want it to look!

  2. Hmmm. Could you use a Drimmel or lots of elbow grease and sandpaper to shorten the clip part of the label? Ask a high school shop teacher is there is a better solution.
