    Jill Davis' Kindergarten Classroom

    My name is Jill Davis. I teach at Kendall-Whittier Elementary in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

    The Reading Center is one of my favorite places in the room! The most noticeable item in the reading center is a colorful palm tree! This Chicka Chicka Boom Boom tree was made by my mom for my son's nursery.

    I stamped small coconut trees onto the pillows to match!

    I created a bench out of an old shelving unit, covering it with some padding and denim material. Our reading buddies are stored in a shoe holder and we have a variety of pointers that change throughout the year!

    There is also a small table with a tape player and headphones for the students to listen to books on tape.

    There is also an aquarium in the corner providing a soothing bubbling sound. I have collected several books, big books, and magazines for the Reading Center.

    My students and I love this center!
