Interested in creating a classroom library like this one? Here are a few tips for making this reading dream a reality.
LABEL YOUR BOOK BINS AND SHELVES
LABEL EVERY BOOK
RESERVE SPACE FOR FEATURED BOOKS
Select books that correlate with current units of study and give them room to breath. When there are a few featured books with their covers proudly showing, kids can’t resist taking a closer look.
SPLURGE ON A COZY RUG
Traditional classroom rugs aren’t nearly as inviting as this little beauty. A rug you wouldn’t mind having in your own home is the ticket for making young readers feel at home. A comfortable reader is more likely to maintain focus or take risks.
ADD DECORATIVE TOUCHES
A few extras like plants, a leaf canopy, and fun wall décor emphasize how special this nook truly is. Kids appreciate these little touches…they will even invite their friends for an after school library tour…trust me.
TOP IT OFF WITH AN INVITING CHAIR
I would love to see these tips in action in your classroom. Snap a photo of your classroom library and tag me @coreinspiration on Instagram so I can take a peek.
