Waiting room distractions Posted on October 11, 2019October 12, 2019 by admin Here are some of my favorite ways to help keep siblings and waiting students occupied, happy and quiet while I’m teaching. Kids in my studio are all excited to read Calamity Jack, one of series of fabulous books by Shannon and Dean Hale. Graphic novels are big with all ages. Keeping engaging books in your waiting area is a good idea both for students and siblings. Pop-up books by Robert Sabuda are favorites with my students ages 5 – 10. The Wizard of Oz is magical. They require a bit of supervision with the youngest children. Other favorites I own are Cinderella, and Alice in Wonderland. There’s a new White House book that I’d love to get. These Scanimation books are amazing. Each picture seems to move as you leaf through the pages. It’s a perfect waiting area book.
