In a vastly large Pre-K-8 school, I was fortunate this year to be blessed with a homeroom class who were beyond avid readers. I have observed some students retreat to the floor to find a comfortable spot for reading. With the inspiration of those students, I have even gone as far as to redesign a once cluttered corner into a private reading section. It is their personal secluded area with a built in wall to wall bench with cushions (I have included a photo of the redesigned area). Trust me when I say that if I told them that I am not teaching and we will have silent sustained reading instead, they would be more than happy. One student had the audacity to ask if I could stop teaching for the remainder of the school year, and this was in December. What can a teacher do but laugh! Although my classroom is called The Reading Cafe, I must say that this section (a.k.a. teen lounge) has set a tone, created an ambiance and has encouraged more reading.
