Ocean theme reading area

Clip to ScrapBook #1

I am doing an ocean theme in my room. I need help with my reading corner...I wanted to do something like "Get Caught Up In a Good Book" or "Catch a Good Tale" and I wanted to know if anyone else could think of any good titles. I was going to set up a fish net and put stuffed fish and stuff in it along with book titles/genres on cardboard or something. Then I was going to use a stuffed animal...a bear or something... and have it holding a fishing pole reaching for the net. Does this make sense?

Can anyone help me out I am not sure exactly how to set it up. My reading area is a 5' by 8' L shape area. Does my idea sound doable? Does anyone else have any ideas for a reading corner they would like to share that would go along with getting caught in a book???

Thanks for any help!

I hung a sign that reads, "Hooked on Books" above my library. I also have inflatable fish hanging from fishing line. Attached to each is a genre definition.

I'm making a sign that reads.
Beware: read at your own risk-you may get hooked on books

Also found a cute sign which I'm copying
I made it with a greetings workshop software.
With each phrase = a picture of a sea creature

Title:
Rules for Good Listeners
lips closed=fish looking at a fish hook
feet still = octopus
hands quiet= crab with clicking claws
eyes watching = sea horse with glasses
ears listening = snail or shrimp with antenae

a photo of my Reader's Reef. I hung a fishing net on the wall, and sea creatures from the ceiling. Add beach chairs on clearance at Target! The sign says "Get Hooked on a Good Book".

Mamabear, do you have a photo of yours? I like your rules.

Thanks for the great ideas! I am going to set up my classroom next week and I am moving to a new school and switching grade levels so I feel like I am starting from scratch.

Mamabear, I saw that poster in Really Good Stuff and was planning on ordering it...it fits perfectly with the theme.

Scraphappy, do you happen to have a picture of your reading area...I like the idea.

I didn't do a theme last year...I am afraid I might overdo it with the theme. How do you control yourself from doing too much?
