My Classroom Library


I really liked my classroom library last year…it was cozy, cute, and the perfect size for 2-3 of my Kinders to snuggle up with a good book or two, but it lacked something!

So thanks to my friends at Oriental Trading Co., my classroom library has a whole new look and theme–RAINBOW!!  I kept many of the colors the same as the rest of my room (turquoise and black), but added some lime greens, purples, and a few splashes of red, orange and yellow to help bring it to life…

I just LOVE these blue, teal, and lime lanterns!!  I hung them with fishing line and some hooks in the ceiling!  It helps to define the space, yet still ties in with the rest of my room!

These awesome new book tubs are the perfect size for holding my collections of books!  I’ve since added labels to the front of them to show the kiddos where to return the book they are looking at. They come in a pack of 6 and I used almost all of them here in my library.

I’m also LOVING this shelf top book display unit.  It took me about 2 minutes to put together and it holds SO MANY books!  I put all the books here that didn’t really have a category and so the children could see some of the fronts of the book covers instead of just the spines.

These red, yellow, purple, and blue pillows helped to make the area oh so cozy and the kids LOVE curling up on them to read their favorite books!  Be sure to visit Oriental Trading Company’s website to start decorating your classroom library with one of their cute new themes!!
