See my collection of classroom library labels here

This teacher did a DIY project with marquee letters (#ad) to create the beautiful READ letters for her classroom library. This is what she said about it: "I bought 4 letters to spell READ for my classroom library. I wanted to have them be more fun so I took each letter apart and spray painted it and put a scrapbook paper print on the front to give it a unique look. It was super easy and I’m not crafty at all."

Classroom Library Spring themed Bulletin Board Idea: Rooted in Reading. The tree (#ad) and butterflies (#ad) are from School Girl Style.

This teacher used narrow trash bins (#ad) as library bins for storing her large workbooks since most library bins would not have been tall enough to support them.

 

Make a reading showcase like this these if you have the space in your classroom. I like this bulletin board design. The first poster (#ad) reads 'Today a Reader, Tomorrow a Leader' and these book cut-outs (#ad) were used. The second poster can be found here (#ad).

About Me

My photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
