Monday Made it #1: Treasured Books Chest
My classroom theme this school year is a red and black pirate theme... arrggh. I made this chest to hold the books that fly off the shelves. Whenever I do a book talk, I swear every kid in the class wants a copy of the book in their individual book box. Since I only have one copy, and 25+ kiddos, I put those "must reads" in a special spot. Students are welcome to read these books during reading choice time (my students participate in a modified version of the Daily 5) but they have to put the books in the box back after the reading choice so other students can read the book vs. the book box books that students keep until they are finished enjoying the book.
Read on to see how it was made...
I made ten frames for my classroom. I am giving a set of numbers 1 through 10 as a freebie on my Facebook page, but also have a full set of numbers 1 through 20 on my TpT store.
