    I have found a cute smallish armchair for 20 bucks at a thrift store. I'm going to use it for my "Reading Area"/center in my room this year. I'd also like to have a real bookshelf there too---

    How do you guys/gals have your Reading Area set up? :) Any suggestions? I'm trying to make mine very "homey". As I have a small class size (about 8) I don't have to worry too much about rotation of who gets to use it, etc.

    I have a huge stuffed alligator and two bean bags. I am adding a lamp this year...maybe.

    Sadly, I have no space in my classroom for a reading area. I just make sure the kids have room to get to and see all the books on my two bookshevles. Most of the time, reading is done at their desks.

    I have an old armchair that the students love sitting on when they are reading books. I also have a small blue carpet on the floor in my reading area. My bookcases are filled with books. I have two bookcases that were provided by the school, and I bought two more bookcases with my own money to hold the rest of my books. I am now in the process of putting my books into tubs according to genres, authors, topics, etc.

    I bought two chair for my reading center and ended up not using them. My kids love laying on pillows all over the floor.
