We Need More Fun Literacy Centers!

My students need letters, cards to build words with, charts and cards to practice comprehension, and fun reading material to build fluency.

My Students

"Teach me and I'll forget; show me and I may remember; involve me and I'll understand." Literacy centers are many students favorite time in the school day because they experience literacy in a hands-on and personal way.

My students attend a Title I school that is 86% free and reduced lunch.

They come largely from backgrounds that do not afford them the experience of handling educational or literacy based games. Like most children, my students love hands-on activities and are enthusiastic and engaged when doing literacy centers. Literacy centers provide my students a time to experiment and learn about patterns in language and words. Often students will tell me about a discovery they made about language while doing literacy centers. I can't express how important it is for students to explore and discover language on their own!

My Project

These new sets of literacy centers will rejuvenate center time in our classroom! Students have been using the same teacher made centers since the beginning of the year, and these new, brightly colored centers such as Tub of Letters and Reading Comprehension Practice Cards from Lakeshore will excite and reinvest students into literacy centers time.

Thank you for taking the time to look at this project.

I have spent hours making my own centers each year. These literacy centers will excite and encourage learning during literacy centers time. Children are most engaged when they are doing hands on work. These literacy centers will open up new and exciting activities for them to experience during centers, and I will also be able to reuse them for years to come!
