Reading corner

just hang curved shower rod in the corner with some shelves, pillows, and a rug

for Read to Self...saw this at a workshop and I really want to try it!

Beautiful classroom reading area

Like this idea for class library. I've been wanting to do this with all of my beanie babies!

Love this class library area!

I love this blog! Great examples how to transform traditional classroom into places of enquiry. Transforming our Learning Environment into a Space of Possibilities: Then and Now: Reading Corner

Reading corner in classroom made from recycled pallets. LOVE the hanging swing!! The other pics of this girl's classroom are great too

LOVE this idea! Class timeline--remembering all the awesome stuff we've done! {Would be best to keep this running all year long... kind of like a scrapbook timeline... maybe choose photos each month and write captions for each in a guided or shared writing format.}

I like the idea of having a space just for parenst so that they can see what is going on in class and help their children ready for the day before they have to leave.

An idea for establishing things that the kids can do in different areas.

Construction play area

I love this! We'd probably be making one every other year but who cares it's so cute! -- read How I Became a Pirate by Melinda Long and David Shannon -- Yes the sail moves up and down! And yes, there is a huge anchor in the back! I love the "walk the plank" and tape a shark fin or two around the plank and you're set!!

My classroom reading area

Instead of 1 big mat get a whole heap of little mats!
