The Readers' Throne

New York Teacher

Classroom with comfortable armchair that says "Readers Throne"

We use the Readers’ Throne in my classroom when students present their independent writing projects. Surrounding the throne are “book boats,” as we call them, which are recycled cardboard boxes covered in duct tape. Each book boat has a blanket and pillow inside to create a cozy independent reading and listening space for students to use during reading periods and writing presentations.
