Book Shelves a la First Grade

I believe that a child should be in love with reading from a young age. Well, when you were a little person, what enticed you to pick up a book? It was the cover of course! The problem is that most bookshelves are not designed with the young child's mind in mind, so most shelved showcase the bind of the book. Well, Mr. Phippen built me this first grade friendly book shelf. It is fashioned out of vinyl rain gutters found at Home Depot as well as a few sturdy 2 x 4's. It shows off the book covers and keeps my students going back for more. Maybe I can get Mr. Phippen to post a little tutorial on how to make this beauty!

  1. I love, love, love this! I've seen the gutters used before but haven't figured out how to use them without attaching to the wall. Could you share pics of the "legs" or how it stands, I think my husband might be able to do this for me.....with a little bribing of course! Your classroom ideas are great!!
