Creating the Perfect Reading Spot!

As a Kindergarten and First Grade teacher I have the very important job of teaching my students how to read. If you are a teacher of young children, you know that there are a few ways we teach students to "read." One is to "read" the pictures to tell the story. Another way is to "read" the pictures to tell the story you know. The other is to read the author's words to tell the story. Not only do we teach these young 5, 6 and 7 year olds to read - but we also want them to LOVE to read! I make it my mission each and every year to come up with that "perfect reading spot" in the booknook area of my classroom where the children WANT to be with their book! Here are a few of mine that I have used in my classroom. Maybe they will give you a little inspiration as you return to the classroom and begin setting it up!

Just Like Home!

If you would like a few more ideas click on this link here!  As you can see, there are so many fun ways to create that perfect reading spot! Thanks for visiting today and before you go, I would LOVE to give away my Reading Workshop Posters from my store. I created them to help teach students and hold them accountable for book talks after reading. They really work!

  1. Love these ideas. I love all Jan Brett books. The Mitten I guess would be my favorite.
