Today I want to share a tip for K-2 teachers or teachers who might have young readers at home. Young readers need a place to keep the books they are reading for the week. When my daughter was learning from home this school year, one of my challenges was making sure she had a supply of books she could access quickly when it was time for reading.
Then an empty pizza box walked into our lives and changed everything. Most people saw an empty pizza box. Not this lady. I saw a magical book bin that doubled as a reading mat. Not only was it fun to decorate, but it could hold a lot of books of all shapes and sizes.
Are your reading bins looking a little shabby? Or do you just need a little something to get your young readers re-energized and re-excited about independent reading time? Maybe pizza boxes are just what you need!
