So I came across this cool post on the NZ Teachers Facebook page, and immediately had to make these things called 'Book boats'. I went out and brought the containers, had huge difficulty cutting the lid in half with a saw and decorated them on my teacher only days.
School has only been back a few days. We brought them out on Monday for 'read to self' time in reading and the children were in love. They all wanted a turn and couldn't wait to read in it. As we only made 5, we had to leave them only for 'read to self' time when they could then choose to read in them on the deck.
You can see in the picture, the children are so engaged with their reading. So cute and comfortable! The best thing I've made for my classroom this year!
