The building trades class made me a magazine rack last year and a huge shelving unit this year. I bought a Walmart bookcase and many books and magazines and violá! We have a reading nook! Well, we added the beanbags this year and NOW we have a reading nook!
Readers are leveled beginner, intermediate, advanced based on the length and difficulty of the books. I include the scholastic magazines in each level’s options. Most of the readers are from Club Leo. I buy magazines in the summer when I travel so I have a wide variety but I also subscribe to People en español to keep new stuff coming in regularly!
We have 1-2 ten minute reads per week and students really do a great job! I hope to double the library by next year! Slowly but surely, it will overtake the room, I hope! I’d love to channel Donalyn Miller and do some real, hard core learning what my kids like to read!
