5. Use this generic GrandStand display to name things or areas in a classroom -- featured book nook, quiet zone, observation area, art table, health center, and more.
6. Share selected student writing or drawings for all to see. Have students write or draw on half-sheets of 8.5” x 11” paper so they will fit on the stand.

Fellow students can remove the folded sheet, open it, observe its contents, and place it back on the GrandStand.
