Made It One: I think we've all seen those amazing reading benches on Pinterest by now. These have been on my mind for years but I didn't think I had room for one. After seeing Teeny Tiny Teacher's reading bench on Instagram, I just knew I had to find room somewhere for a bench. I realized one could be squeezed right between my desk and my library. Perfect! So my husband and I ran to Ikea and picked these up:
Now my original configuration was suppose to look like a corner bench, but the two little cubes didn't work that way, so I stacked them up instead. I can't wait to see my kids reading on this bench! Now to figure out what to put inside the cubes. I'm thinking book bins, manipulatives, or baskets for extra general storage.
Made It 2:
I updated my word wall to fit my theme better. I'm excited to put it up today. Whenever I create I always try out several versions of something. The first set had a brights background, I then wanted to see what they would look like with a black background. I liked them both! I then made a white background version to complete the set. I'm having a hard time deciding which one to use...
Monday Made It!
