As summer slowly draws to a close, we thought that we would end our Teacher Tuesday blog series by celebrating the importance of reading! Inspire kids to cozy up with a good book by transforming a corner of your room into an awesome reading nook. A beautiful and inviting classroom library will encourage students to read during free periods, and ultimately strengthen their literary skills. By showing how much we value books, students will eventually feel the same way.
We’ve gathered up ten of our favorite reading corners that are sure to make reading the best part of your students’ day.
