#teaching #yearone This is what I made for my Year 1 classroom when we were studying pirates and the sea. This is my reading corner. I got a pile of pillows and piled them up to create the island and i covered it with a sandy colour paint protector (from red dot and spotlight)...... The tree is just made for cardboard boxes and paint... the coconuts are small brown balloons....The water was just scarps of blue paper stuck together....KIDS LOVED IT!!!
Great idea for poetry: bulletin board for the month. They wrote "I Wish" poems then took pictures as if blowing a dandelion. Cut them out and pasted them next to a dandelion made out of yarn and sticks.
