Idea for Displaying Students' Work --
(Include a picture of Toto in a basket.)

Idea for Instruction --
Use a wand to gently tap students before calling on them for answers. (just like Glenda, the good witch)
Reading Area -- cardboard box decorated like a house / Place a tornado above it, or better yet, make a tornado in a bottle using a two-liter bottle and tornado tube (available at teacher supply stores).
I'm not sure what grade you teach.
I hope these ideas will be helpful to you.
