First, they picked The Maze Runner by Dashner as our August book. I think it is great that 15 kids all share the same reading preferences.
With our One World, Many Stories theme in the kids room, we created a "communication corner". See our lovely English phone box? It was once a refrigerator box, but I cut the many windows and created a "dome" by gluing on poster board. The TBC painted and decorated the booth. We placed toy phones all around the box and on the tables and the little guys have just loved "calling" the world fr
om the library this summer.
Here is a close up of the inside.
Also, written inside is "hello" in many different languages.
