Day 2 is here and the topic is "Literacy Centers". This was a request by multiple people, but I have to tell you right now... this is not my strong suit. I do Daily 5 in my classroom, so what would equate to Literacy Centers is my Word Work station. In Word Work, I give my students a list of words that follows our spelling rule. They do different things to practice spelling words. These things include anything from lego letters I purchased at Lakeshore, to rainbow words, ABC beads and magnetic letters. I try to change out their options every 6-9 weeks. This is what I keep my word work centers in:
I also have word searches for each spelling rule. I put them in binders on top of this cart.
Here are some pictures of the inside of my spelling binder where I store things for each spelling rule:
|In a sheet protector I keep spelling lists for easy access to copy.|
|Next, I keep a list of our district's K-1 High Frequency Words.|
|Then, I have a copy of our spelling timeline for 1st grade.|
|Then I have pocket folders for each spelling rule. Here is short i. In the front I keep the spelling list and word work sheets.|
|Then, on the back of each pocket I keep the word searches ready to be put in the plastic pockets of my binders for word work.|
Now, it's your turn! Leave a comment or link up a blog post to tell us how YOU organize literacy centers. Don't forget to grab my button if you link up!
Tomorrow's topic is math. I am excited to share my new ways of organizing for math!
