Interactive Literacy Centers

Help me give my students learning games for engaging literacy centers to build confidence and make learning fun again!

My Students

I teach pre-k through 5th grade library classes at a Title I school. Students’ backgrounds vary, but many are struggling readers and perform below grade level due to multiple factors. In addition to these classes, I also teach two newcomer classes for students who are just beginning to learn English and require extra literacy support.

In addition to checking out fantastic books, a typical day in my library classes has students working collaboratively in groups to foster a love for learning and develop reading, writing and critical thinking skills.

As often as possible, I incorporate fun learning games, technology and other devices to increase student engagement and give confidence to students who sometimes struggle to find success in school. My goal is to foster a love for reading and inspire students to make great gains in reading proficiency!

My Project

The students in my library classes are bored with traditional literacy centers and are begging me to provide engaging and enriching centers to help boost their reading scores. These tools, like the Hot Dot pens and Zingo game, will really create a fun learning environment for my students.

It is vital that students are reading on-grade level by the third grade and I need to find creative centers to make the most of our time together.

The library is a great place to add literacy centers for students because we are not bound by traditional classroom instruction. While the traditional classroom curriculum is standards-based and appropriate, sometimes students need additional activities that infuse creativity and fun in order to teach those "hard-to-reach" students!
