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.
- “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.
