Get Started With Literacy Centers!
We all know that small group instruction is vital to successful learning in the primary classroom, but what do we do with the rest of the class while we are teaching these small groups? We understand the value of student initiated learning, but how do we include that in our instructional day? We want to provide our students with meaningful, engaging and standard based independent practice, but how? The answer to all of these questions lies in the implementation of literacy centers in the classroom! Literacy centers provide meaningful and authentic instruction for students, while providing uninterrupted teaching time for directed small group instruction. Center based learning allows for student led practice in all the key areas of the language arts framework. Most importantly, center based instruction instills confidence and excitement in our young learners.
