Glad that you have joined me! Every Sunday I share some of the best ideas I have found throughout the week.
My hunt began on Pinterest when I saw a picture of a directional sign post (this city in ___ miles kinda thing) for book settings. Trying to trace it back to its original owner was not successful because it ended up on tumblr, which led me nowhere. However, I found some great ideas along the way. First stop, The Adventures of a Library Girl - She posts a picture of her directional sign posts with stops like Neverland, Camp Halfblood, Ember and Panem (pictured below). I have been to all of these except for Ember, which is on to read list. Click on the picture to be taken to her post for directions on how she created her signs.

She got the idea from The Eliterate Librarian who created a sign post with some of the stops being Naria, District 13, Forks, and Lorien (pictured below). I have been to all of these, great books all. Click on the picture to be taken to her post for directions on how to recreate. She got the idea from a Pinterest page of a fellow librarian - Library Displays/Decor. From there, it goes to Sunsurfer on tumblr, which is a dead end.

Mini Chart StandA Modern Teacher shared a great idea that I plan to use at my guided reading table - a mini chart stand. She took a plain clipboard and turned it into a chart stand for under $5.00. Fabulous! Check out how she did it and see the pictures of the final product by clicking on her blog button below. You will be taken to the exact post.
I hope you have enjoyed "A Few of My Favorite Things" and come back each Sunday to see what other fabulous finds I have gathered for your enjoyment and to add to your resources.
