Quick, Cheap, and Easy Share Chair One of the teachers at my school made this share chair. I thought it was clever and cute. I had never thought of using a plastic lawn chair for a “Share Chair”. She decorated it with stickers and the kids love it. She uses it for not only literacy, but other subjects as well such as the closing of her math lesson.

Beginning of school. This would even work in middle school. My kids love the David books (yes, I take them from my 6-year-old to share with my 8th graders!).

I love this idea for a classroom timeline. What a great way to build a sense of shared culture and community :)
