P.S. If you click on the picture, you can get a better look. : )
|This is my little corner behind my desk (computer table). |
I gave up my honkin' teacher desk 3 years ago and LOVE it being gone!
|Desk area to the left, meeting area to the right. Blue tubs are filled with my leveled library.|
|This is my leveled library. It "hugs" the meeting area. |
I love that it surrounds the kids when we meet at the carpet.
|Just added new cute leveled labels today. Thanks for the labels, Deanna Jump!|
|This is my "Look Book" shelf. Mostly themed, non-fiction books that the kids can choose from to add to their book bags.|
|These colored tubs on top of my cabinets are also themed books. They start with the first day of school type books and go in order by science and social studies units all the way to the end of the year.|
|The train of books keeps going and going and going. LOVE!!!|
|I still have to unload the kids' lockers in the hallways to fill these tubs. They are all specific author tubs. The more popular authors in my room (think Mo Willems) have more than one tub.|
Our reading coach got a grant to purchase a bazzilion blue book tubs for us as well as lots of brand new leveled books last year! Our principal knew how much we needed them and purchased even more tubs and books! I have the best administrators who are in it for the kids all the way!!! It is so great to have that kind of support!
I have a poster in the back of my room with an illustration from David Shannon that says "Never Enough Books!" I hold that saying close to my heart!!! I would love to count them someday...wonder how long that would take?
