Our Classroom Reading Nook

Our classroom reading nook is one of our most popular literacy stations.  Before school started I spent time going through our classroom library and organizing the books by topic and reading level.  At the beginning of school I surveyed the students about the types of books they liked to read and the things they wanted to know more about.  By observing and listening to the students I keep a close eye on the books that are generating the most interest.  I also include books that coordinate with the Science/Social Studies units we are currently studying.  By limiting the amount of books they have access to, students spend more time reading and less time “grazing”.  Also, by having books always rotating in and out students  always have an opportunity to find something new to read.  Students especially enjoy having a quiet place to stretch out and be comfortable.

  • I am so glad you have a reading nook again this year. It really does look like an inviting space to read and relax.

  • Your nook looks like it will invite readers. I like your READ letters.

  • Students need reading nooks in their classrooms, it’s their home away from home. As much as I have created nooks and reading spaces in the library, they only visit once a week for a short period of time, so having a special place in the class to read fosters that love for reading for pleasure we must try to nurture as much as possible.

    Great job!
