Reading is a vital skill to be focused on in any classroom, but the key to getting your students to master that skill is to make the task of reading enjoyable. And when it comes to making reading fun, a good book is only half the battle. That's where reading corners and book nooks come in! Kids love cozy, themed spaces just for them (hello, blanket fort!), and the creation of a designated space can help eliminate distractions that keep your students from fully immersing themselves in a story. Best of all, with CTP's Curated Classroom Mega Packs, creating a classroom corner for reading has never been easier. Check out our ideas below for inspiration on how you can decorate your classroom book nook, too!

Calm & Cool Reading Corner
Chill out with a great book in this Calm & Cool reading corner!
Who wouldn't want a calming environment for their reading corner!? One easy hack for helping to achieve a calmer classroom atmosphere is the incorporation of cool colors - bright, less saturated blues, greens, and purples - which research suggests have a calming effect on the body and mind, resulting in improved concentration and less stress. This same color palette is also used in hygge (hoo-guh), the popular design/lifestyle trend from Denmark that is gaining popularity in classrooms and at home. Hygge's emphasis on comfort and uncluttered coziness promotes a sense of contentment and togetherness. This set up features our soaring high bulletin board, our color block letters, our calm and cool hot air balloons cut outs, our letter and light boards cut outs, our colorful mini chevrons EZ border and our blue stylish scallops EZ border.
