Many of you weren’t with us when we first started our blog. We posted some really great pictures and information about centers back then and we would like to repost to perhaps help new teachers with ideas or help spark some new excitement for “seasoned” teachers. Enjoy! If you have any questions or if we can help you in any way, please be sure to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Here are some pictures of the Classroom Library. To make it a little cozier, we added a rug, pillows and a small lamp in our library. Of course the kids love it, but we wanted it to be a place where they could work with words and stories as well as “read” their favorite books. Here are a few of our ideas.
We attached a pocket chart with a flannel top to the board in the library so we could retell nursery rhymes and stories.
This activity is a rebus version of Hickory Dickory Dock. The poem is placed in the top 2 rows as a model for the kids, then they put the sentences together and fill in the blanks with the pictures. The kiddos need lots of practice with rhyming (especially at the beginning of the school year) so this activity comes in real handy.
