Bec in the library

"I have always imagined that paradise will be a kind of library." — Jorge Luis Borges

It’s magic! New flexible collaboration spaces. November 1, 2016

Filed under: Teaching — becinthelibrary @ 1:03 pm

With the new layout of the library, collaboration and explicit instruction spaces were sacrificed. This made my insides shrivel so I knew there had to be a solution to having them back but in a way that doesn’t impact the new layout.

Voila!!

  1. “Pop up” tables!!

The table tops slide under the shelves – made to fit perfectly – then are pulled out and laid atop the (big, ugly, not child friendly – grrr) chairs. DONE! A collaborative working space for 3 kids 🙂

[please excuse my terribly messy shelves…blush]

2. Moveable shelves

At first, a browsing area for reference and chapter books, the next minute a whole class teaching space! Thank you very much wheeled shelves 🙂

So stoked with how they turned out – gorgeous and actually working really well in actuality.
