Our Classroom Reading Nook "Starbooks" Style



Recently, one of the education classes from our local community college donated an AMAZING reading nook for our classroom. The college students collaborated with each other to design, create, and build this fabulous new place for our students to read. 

 It has been such a wonderful addition to our classroom, and we are so grateful for the college students for their thoughtfulness and talent! Their professor was my professor once and it is such a treat to see her continue to help shape college students for their future careers. 

I am so excited to share the photos with all of you! The students love this special place. 


The box is actually a recycled refrigerator box. 

 The students had a plan for assembly before they got there, and I was so impressed with how well they worked together. They put the whole thing together in about an hour while the kiddos were gone to specials. 
 The "Starbooks Cafe" sign is a vinyl sticker!

It fits perfectly in the cove between our huge air conditioning unit and our computer space. 


How adorable is this menu of play on words as well as the genius lights for the nook? The lights are one of my favorite features and the students love turning them on and off each day. 




The finished product! We LOVE it!


Also, I made a video explaining all of the different parts of the reading nook.
