Pinterest Pick 3: July

So, apparently July has started, which means it is time to link up with Inspired Owl's Corner, Just Reed, and Pawsitively Teaching for Pinterest Pick 3!

I've been spending some time thinking about my classroom library, and how I'd like it to not just be a corner of the room with books, but a part of our classroom that students interact with on a daily basis. Here are some ideas I found on Pinterest that I can't wait to try this school year!

I actually saw this idea on Tara's Monday Made It, but I liked it so much I sought out the original pin to read more about it.

I love the idea of creating an event calendar for your library, and there are so many ways to customize it and make it work for your classroom. I think my students will really enjoy this!

This is something I wanted to do last year, but didn't have a space for.

This pin actually takes you an entire unit on the regions of the US which looks fantastic, but the purpose of this pin is to show a map you can add to your classroom library. Any time you read a book that takes place in a specific city or state, you add a push pin to the map in that particular location. I want to do this at home as well!

My last pin is this cute idea for book buddies.

Even though I have 3rd and 4th graders, they are all big babies at heart and I think they will love picking a "buddy" to read to! It could actually be a really clever way to introduce reading to a real, live partner!

What do you do to make your classroom library a special place?

  1. Love the label for the book buddy bin, I have a tag but may have to pull out the Cricut and some vinyl this summer. I would love to collect some buddies from books that we read, I think the kids would love them even more! Thanks for sharing these pins.

    1. Oh, that's a great idea! Kohl's and B&N sometimes have character stuffed animals. I am dying to get a Cricut...maybe for Christmas!

  2. I love your library ideas. You are so right- I bet your kids love those reading buddies. NEVER too old!!! I like that map idea. The books your kids read really have a lot of locations in them. What a great way to incorporate some geography! Have a great day!!

    1. Thank you, Carolyn! I'm hoping the map will help them to focus more on the settings and how they can affect the plot of the story.
