The Perfect Reading Corner for Kids in School
A reading corner is an essential element to any classroom, preschool or nursery. This is a peaceful space where children can focus on developing literacy skills, independent learning skills, and practice calm group listening.
Not only this but while children are learning to read and write they should have easy access to space and tools with which they can build on these skills. Encouraging children to take initiative with learning can be achieved through a reading corner.
Our range of Springboard Supplies book corner resources makes building a reading corner easy for all environments, whether that’s individual primary school reading time or reading corner preschool group activities.
Reading Corner Display and Layout
Having a tidy reading area display for books is important so that children can see books that they might want to pick up and read. OurDouble-Sided Book Rack or Wall Mounted Book Rackis good for keeping books on show, and both can hold a large selection.
Good book corner display is paramount because this is what will inspire kids to choose a book and open it. We stock tools that help keep books open for group reading like our Big Book Rack, or the Desktop Book Rack that can be positioned on a reading classroom display table.
When considering reading corner shelves, reading corner lettering, and signage, everything in the space should be clear and easy to access so that children can visit the reading corner on their own without adult assistance if they want to. School reading corner furniture is no different. Create a cosy comfy space with Giant Floor Cushions or section off a part of the classroom with modular furniture like this Corner Seat.
Children's Reading Corner and Book Corner Ideas
Our range of early years supplies will get you inspired with kids reading corner ideas to keep children engaged and focused on the activity of reading. The furniture and accessories we stock can help you develop book corner themes to reflect what children are learning about and immerse them in a story. Create a woodland scene with Tree Stump Stools, or Seasons Grab-and-Go Cushions: a perfect reading corner for boys or girls.
Reading Corner Ideas for Kindergarten
Looking for reading corner ideas for toddlers? Set up a Tree House Library Corner to get little ones into the reading zone. For reading corner display ideas that double as storage, themed furniture is a good way to decorate and tidy items away at the same time, like thisSnail Cabinet.
Primary School Reading Corners: KS1 and KS2
Our Year 1 and 2 reading corner resources (KS1) focus on making it easy for younger children to access and interact with books, creating a fun environment that helps transport them into the stories they read. The space should also promote a calm mood. A Reading Corner Seat is a great way to get a story corner started for younger children that can be built on and decorated over time.
Year 3+ reading corner resources for KS2 should still feed into the excitement and imagination of reading. But at these ages, children can begin to be depended on to use and look after a reading corner with more responsibility.
Book corner ideas for KS2 should begin to incorporate more books that might be stored by genre. A tallerSingle Sided Bookcasewould be ideal for this allowing children to browse book spines and encouraging them to keep books organised.
Children’s Classroom Reading Corner Supplies
A school reading corner should be cosy and comfortable. Maple Reading House gives the feeling of an enclosed, cosy space without cutting children off from a group or supervisor. This is especially important for toddler reading corners where children should be allowed the privacy to read but still encouraged to be part of the class.
Kids book corners tend to be more successful when themed along with books of a certain author, topic or genre that is being taught. A Floor Standing Book Rack can help support this theme by creating a decorative wall of relevant books that children can go up to and browse.
