Always thought that this was a great idea! Better with a cabinet door over W that would swing clear or slide in out of the way. Counters serve dual purpose, make that laundry room a walk in closet!
Instead of a science fair...a reading fair! This is a FABULOUS idea for Reading Night or a display of favorite books for Media Center. Could even make mini boards for book report, place on desktops, and let students take a tour of classroom. GREAT for review of narrative elements or even character close up!!!
