Recycled cereal boxes make a great place to store students' reading books! Cut the narrow side of a medium-size cereal box at an angle as shown. To make a book holder, a child covers the box with paper and glues a library pocket on one side. The student personalizes the book holder with stickers, magazine pictures, and drawings. Then she stores books for silent reading in the holder. She keeps an index card in the pocket to record the book titles and the number of pages she read.
Considering making fabric bins for the cubbies in a bookshelf. Thinking it might be easier and cheaper to just cover some cheap fabric bins I buy, though. Think I can find some to fit those exact cubbies?
