Here is the wall outside my reading room. I wanted to do something that would encourage the children to read and incorporate winter and Valentine's Day. This is an idea similar to what I found on Pinterest. It was very simple to make.
Olaf was made by Grace, a former kindergarten/first grade student of mine who is now in fifth grade. I had some book jackets that fit perfect for this purpose. Then I cut out some simple hearts and the librarian at my school cut out some snowflakes. I wrote out the words "I love warm hugs and books." in fancy letters.
That's it!! The kiddos just love it. I love that it is bright and cheerful and it reflects my love for reading.
I haven't shared much this school year because I have been logging in a lot of books in the reading resource room. I have NO prep time so the little bit of free time I do have I am logging and shelving books. I really didn't think it would take me this long to log in books.
