This is what my classroom reading area currently looks like. As you can see, I have a blank slate to work with. Here is where I need your help! The reading space that I envision having in my classroom is cozy, not too tight, books are easily accessible, colorful, organized, cute labels, and unique. I consider myself to be an out-of-the-box teacher so no idea of yours will be thought of as crazy! What are your thoughts? Suggestions?
Then there’s my chapter books. I always struggle with how to display these. I scored this really neat book rack this past year and I love the way it looks. My only problem with this is that the kids only see the front book cover and rarely dig through these. Maybe I need to take some time to do a mini-lesson on browsing books? Do you sort your chapter books by series? How do you organize them?
We do use the Accelerated Reading program so I do know that this is how I need to organize my books. Do you know of any cute labels for these tubs? Do you have a better way of organizing these so they aren’t so crammed into each tub? Disclaimer: my hubby will not allow me to bring home anymore books to store in his garage so to empty these tubs and trade them out mid-year isn’t really an option! #teacherproblems #bookaddiction
This is what my reading area looked like this past year. It just feels cold and boring! Can you help me out? I have a Pinterest board that I have started to pin ideas to if you’d like to check it out or suggest pins to me! I look forward to seeing your ideas!
