Hooray! This project is fully funded
I have been teaching at my school for the past 9 years and this is my second time teaching first grade. I would really like to encourage independent work and critical thinking skills in my classroom. I feel that literacy centers would be a great way to do this.
Literacy centers would allow students to go off in pairs to work on fun, engaging learning opportunities while I work with a small group doing guided reading/writing/math. I do not currently have any materials to allow this to happen. Instant literacy centers would change the entire climate of the classroom into a place of independence and ownership for my little students. Literacy centers would also allow me to facilitate more, instead of running the whole show! Your help in making this happen would be amazing for us. Thank you for your time.
