We started new Literacy Centers on Monday. Ya’ll know I’m crazy and have 20 centers but I have to say I love love love doing centers on a 10 day schedule. It’s a lot to plan up front but everything has gone so smoothly and I love having 2-3 students in each center. I won’t overwhelm you with all of my centers, but here is a peak at the next two weeks of literacy learning. J Everything pictured here is in my Turkey Teaching Unit.
Art Centers (they go to one a week)
My star center has a mini pocket chart. They Sort beginning sounds.
Students go to "Big Book Center" after poetry center.
Here a student is in the listening center and after reading the book she is drawing a picture of her favorite part of the book along with the title and author.
Gotta love the home living center. They go to this center once every other week.
I love Leapfrog TAG Readers. I got these last year through a Donor's Choose project. They go to listening one week and TAG readers the next.
For my phone motor center,I created this worksheet where students will use bingo dot thigys (haha, I don't know what they are called) to mark sight words. I will be creating a unit for this center soon.
Rainbow Writing with thin markers.
Writing Center: Students take this leaf book and write fall words.
This is on the bulletin board for students to see.
Magnetic Center: Students make the words with magnetic letters to
match the turkeys and pilgrims.
Pocket Chart Center: Students are sorting capital and lowercase l
etters into this ABC pocket chart.
I always have a science activity so they do this center once every two weeks. I have a science activity in math centers too. This week they are sorting living/nonliving and then for math centers they will do a living/nonliving journal entry.
Have a great day! I will post more of my centers next week and math centers too.
