Thanks to my growing Jamberry business, I have the opportunity over the next few weeks to travel to China to see my son and his wife, and meet my beautiful granddaughter! (If you’re part of Library Centers on Facebook, you’ve seen her photo.) I’ll be enjoying the scenery, and holding that sweet baby, and not writing blog posts. So…I’ve started a new feature at the Centered School Library…Throwback Thursday!
Here’s a throwback to August 2012, when I created a buddy reading center in a tent to match my library’s camping theme. This year, if you follow me on Pinterest, you may have seen that I’m working on a superhero theme for this year. So this camping tent will become a bat cave.
Here’s what I said, two years ago…
I want to share one of my new centers with you. You may remember that I have a goal this year of making reading fun for my students, and I have a camping theme in our library. So, what could be better than a TENT to read in!
Now, I was a little worried about having an actual, completely enclosed tent, where you can’t see what’s going on inside. No, thank you. But I found this beach cabana on Amazon for about $35, and the front is completely open. You can also see through the sides.
I haven’t started seeing students yet, but the teachers are ready to crawl in and enjoy a good book. I know that this will help make special library memories for our students!
So, I wonder what you’re doing in your library. How do you make YOUR reading centers special?
p.s.–this tent was a big hit. I can’t wait to set it up again!
