What does your center time look like?

by Calvin

I am always struggling when it comes to centers in the classroom.

I have the kids at each center for a specific amount of time and then we rotate.

We have a total of 4 centers with one of them being the guided reading center.

Is this the most effective way?

Should I have 4 separate centers and 1 reading table?

They are always centers in which I have to explain as well.

Do you have a video of your whole class doing centers as a whole?

Hopefully this all makes sense.

Thank you for your time!

People who are not educated will not have good opinions and will not talk sensibly; they’ll say whatever comes to their tongue. They don’t have knowledge how to react in certain situations whereas an educated person have good opinions which come through experiences and knowledge; education will reflect in their way of talking. It is very easy to write my essay services with the help of our qualified writers.

Kindergarten Centers

I believe in working "Smarter", not "Harder." Utilizing the components from the Daily Five is a great way to manage your Reading Instruction time. I have 12 literacy tubs and included in those tubs is Read to Self, Read to Someone Else, Work on Writing, Working with Words and Listening, which are components of the Daily Five. The remaining 7 tubs have activites that are generic and can be switched out at the discretion of the teacher. Some examples include Readers Theater where you respond to a book, stamping, magnetic fun, making some type of book, playdough, computers and pocket chart. A couple of the tubs can be seasonal activities as well. Guided Reading is done while students work in tubs and there are never more than two students in a tub at a time, sometimes only one ends up in a tub. A rotation system is needed as well so that students can visualize where to go on a particular day. I also create a generic record sheet with most tubs so that work progress can be kept in a folder to use with student conferences.

Center Question

I would forget the centers and do Daily 5. I will never go back to centers after doing Daily 5.
