Theme: Cozy "Reading" Corners - Day 82

Kinder reading corner. This teacher has two of this little glider chairs.
This is the little reading corner in my 5th grade classroom.
All our classrooms have cozy little areas for reading. The idea is to accustom students to viewing reading as an enjoyable and relaxing pastime, and nurture a lifelong love for reading. Some use it for this, while others don't. But it really adds a nice feel to the the overall atmosphere in the classroom.

vterezia very nice!

mamacita Well, now that's just cool. I wish we had had a cozy reading nook when we were in school. I don't ever remember being encouraged to read much, come to think of it. Thank goodness I loved to anyway. Cute ladybug beanbags!

????? Very nice! My kids all love to read, I think it's really a lifestyle thing- and I think it sooo wonderful that you are in a position to encourage such a thing with children- especially the children who don't get that encouragement at their homes- great blog!~ R

oldbabe They sure don't make classrooms like they used to!

Happy belated birthday!
oldbabe · 2008-04-11: 16:11
????? that's such a great idea - they didn't really push reading on us that much except for the "gifted" class which was just silly. happy belated birthday! : )
