The first pin I chose will organize your whiteboard to be more of a focus wall. I love the idea of
re-purposing wall decals. I posted inspirational messages I found at the Dollar Tree last year, but I never thought about using them on a whiteboard. I love how these might help students *remember* what's important for the day.
The next set of pins actually is a combination idea. The kids in my group fussed all the time about who would get to set in my beanbags, and it wasn't unusual for them to even horde my throw pillows too. How about having the kids bring in their favorite t-shirts to make their own reading pillows. Flip over a chair, add that personalized pillow, and I think you'd have happy little readers.
The last pin I wanted to feature is a reading nook. Kids love having places to "get away" from the hubbub of the classroom. For some kids, a sensory break is needed to help them just cope, so a sweet little reading nook serves multiple purposes. Plus, I think it just adds a sweet personal touch that tells your students that reading is important in your classroom and you want them to feel like your classroom is their temporary home.
This one uses file cabinets and a tension rod to make a cozy nook. I love how the teacher added in photos and pillows to make it warm and comfortable too.
Have a pintastic weekend, readers, and come back Sunday for...duh...duh...duh...
