Reading corner - I love the wooden letters (from JoAnn's painted white) the framed book covers. IKEA spice racks painted white for the bookshelves and dot rugs from IKEA. I would love to do this in a corner of our family room!
Motivation to Read This is an awesome idea to motivate students to read. These laundry baskets would be placed in the reading center. The students would choose 2 or 3 books and read them while sitting in the basket.
