My students need phonics, phonemic awareness, sight word, and writing centers and six listening center books with cds.
As an adult, do you have a hard time sitting in the same place and working on one task for an extended period of time? Sitting still and doing a single task is not exactly a kindergartner’s forte. Yet, that is what is expected of them at least twice a day during centers.
In my classroom students work with a partner in their assigned center for about twenty minutes.
This is also my time to teach guided reading with a group of six students, meaning my ability to work with the other seventeen is extremely limited. Ensuring that the students in centers are motivated, engaged, and learning from their center work is vital. This is their opportunity to try out and develop the new skills they are learning independently. Students get support from each other and from the materials they are using instead of the teacher. Making sure those materials are effective teaching tools is a top priority.
If your answer to the question above was “no” it may be because you really like the task you are working on. You are completely engaged and motivated to do your best to complete the task. Students also require the same engagement and motivation during centers so finding centers that students enjoy is key. Another important aspect of a great center is that it is all inclusive; everything the student could possibly need to complete the task is readily available and all directions are kid friendly. These centers also need to keep student engaged for the full twenty minutes to maximize their learning. The center activities from Lakeshore Learning will allow my students to independently develop their abilities to manipulate sounds and create words, write, identify and use sight words, and hear some of their favorite stories. Each center allows students to add a new task as they learn new skills and most importantly provides them with hands-on practice. The books purchased will be added
Many students are apprehensive about trying out their new literacy skills.
Centers gives students the chance to practice in a save environment at their own pace. The more independent practice and success a student has, the more confident they will be in their abilities. And that means a more successful and capable student.Read More
