I used an anchor chart I got from Pinterest to use as a talking point for the lesson. As you can see in the picture, I used correction tape to add a new idea onto the poster--this one was thought up by the students and they asked if I could add it on! They are proud of their new freedom with reading. A group of girls came over to me during RW one day and asked if they could bring in a blanket or pillow if it was small enough to fit in their cubbies. I am so proud of how my readers are planning for their reading lives.
Here are some photos of my students in their sweet spots. I captured the idea of turning the chairs over from a Pinterest post.
This next sweet spot belongs to one of my special needs students. He is most successful when he makes his boundaries known to others. He likes spatial boundaries to feel safe and protected. He chose his sweet spot and we labled it with his name and taped it off. He has 2 other areas in the room for his writing area and his personal meeting space for minilessons and read alouds.
