Famous Addresses from Children's Literature

Reading and Writing Redhead - Famous addresses from children's literature and how I used them as part of my flexible seating classroom
During my switchover this fall to flexible seating and community supplies, I came across a cool way to identify table groups and seating areas on Pinterest. I bought these chalkboard labels at AC Moore and immediately thought of some of my favorite children's books and  the fact they included addresses. For example, here is 13 Rover Avenue - do you recognize it? It's from the Encyclopedia Brown series!

I used about seven addresses that I could think of off the top of my head and then thought of a few more settings that would work, too. I suddenly realized that this might be fun and helpful to other teachers or librarians so I decided to share with you!

Here is what I came up with! Be sure to comment if you have additional addresses or settings from famous children's literature. You can click on the images under the addresses to grab more details about the books from Amazon.
