My favorite subject to teach is reading. I love meeting with small groups and listening to them read each and every day. I often get asked: I believe in a “happy hum” of chatter in my classroom although most of the centers are actually pretty quiet, because the students are so engaged. Let me explain how my ELA centers work. First of all, I have a 90 minute ELA block. So I teach whole group for 30 minutes, then do 4 rotations of centers that are 15 minutes each. During whole group instruction, I teach the target skills for the week such as phonics, comprehension skills, vocabulary, sight words, etc from our basal series.

Love of books is the best of all. I had so much fun and got to meet the fabulous Kim Adsit. I presented my Literacy Center Ideas. I created a few new ones that I thought I’d share with y’all today. I just love this clipart! In this activity, the student or students will pick a PBJ sandwich from the sandwich container and color in one box under the appropriate column.

I have used them since first grade and they are oh so wonderful and save me oh so much time! It is so nice to have centers ready to go at the beginning of each month for the ENTIRE month! {You can check out a post about my center setup HERE.}.

Here you will find a few print and go activities that can get you started- and all of them are centered pun intended on the pillars of reading set out by the National Reading Panel!

Primary Punch Literacy Centers I have had a lot of questions about how I run literacy centers in my room lately. We don’t use Daily 5, our county has it’s own framework it wants us to use but with the new Common Core we aren’t limited to using a basal reading series anymore which is great! This is a long one but full of good information and hopefully some new ideas.

So, here is how literacy centers goes down in my room of 2nd graders!

What Is a Learning Center A Learning Center is a place or activity that invites students to practice and apply strategies that have been taught or modeled in shared inquiry or whole group instruction.

Even though I do not have a preschool class right now, I still have a bulletin board in my office which I still have a collage of pictures and miscellaneous keepsakes on.

The following ideas are actual ideas and materials that I have personally used.

The possibilities are limitless! One of my very favorite tools. I love to use spray paint in a light covering over a heavy tag board. One of my favorite displays was using gold spray paint on yellow tag board to create a huge sunshine on the wall of my classroom. The gold was lightly covering the yellow and when the light shined on it, it looked fabulous.

The kids thought that the sunshine was so cool, I made a large pair of black sunglasses out of construction paper to put over his eyes! Spray paint when used should be used in a well ventilated outside preferrably area. Fumes aren’t good to breathe in. You can get these from wallpaper stores that are discontinuing samples. The wallpaper samples are often cut it squares, and have a surface that adds a lot of great color and texture.
