Word Wall & Classroom Library updated

 I have updated the pictures on the Word Wall and Classroom Library pages.  My new classroom theme is “Growing Readers” and is done entirely in a garden motif.  I transformed my classroom library into a garden, I was inspired by an idea in Debbie Diller’s latest book, Spaces & Places: Designing Classrooms for Literacy.   You can read all about the items pictured below and ideas on how to implement both areas on the Word Wall or Classroom Library pages.  The large banner above the word wall that says “We’re Growing Readers in Pre-K” is from Vista Print.
