“Read a book and see the world in 180 days”
By Alex on August 14th, 2012
As the school year approaches us (or has started for some) we love to highlight and share creative classroom ideas! Ever hear the expression books can take you to places you never dreamed of? Well that is exactly what’s happening in a particular READ 180 class this year.
In true READ 180 fashion Maria has created three rotation areas, the first stop is Hawaii where she set up her teacher station (good pick, if you ask me), the second is the independent reading area as the arctic and last but not least the computer station which embodies the cities of Paris, Egypt and New York!
Now more then ever it’s so important to keep students motivated and engaged, and I can say from personal experience if I was able start in “Hawaii” and then cool off in an “igloo” all in one day—boy would I have loved school even more!
Aloha, and thanks for sharing, Maria!
