Marsha from A Differentiated Kindergarten used these really neat fort kits that she put together, but I had to improvise just a bit. I brought in full and queen sized flat sheets to drape over the tables. My students brought in beach towels or small blankets and flashlights We turned down the lights except for our class lamp and all read in the forts by flashlight. While we read we also ate letter cookies that I found at Kroger because my students know that letters go together to make words and we read words :)
I thought the forts may throw our reading off for the day, but my kids this year are so awesome that they kept on reading forts, flashlights, cookies, and all!
