Biography or character report. LOVE IT! For all of my teacher friends... Money is tight these days.. A very good alternative to dressing up like the person! Would have never thought this idea!

Whisper Phones help with reading and let them "hear" what they they love to talk on phones so maybe the will want to read MORE!!

Students can't interrupt reading groups when the light is on! They love it! Great visual reminder!

Students shouldn't have to sit in uncomfortable chairs all class. It is important that students are comfortable and are able to move while learning. These chairs can be used during reading groups. Students will have something to look forward to when they are doing their reading groups. Learning will be fun! The fact that the "chairs" are close to each other promote community building and collaborative learning.

musical chairs reading. This would make a great sight word game or decoding simple sentences for my Kinders.

reading log, cute idea, have students do twice a year (once a semester) parents sign off once they are done with that box, when they get their first "bingo" pick a prize, when they get a "blackout" do something else special.
