These things were a true labor of love. Emphasis on the labor!! They took a bit longer than I expected! These are like an ELA companion to my monthly math centers. Just like my math centers, I will be creating these each month. The August pack includes of 100 pages of activities. I tried to incorporate as much differentiation as possible so that all students are working on the same skill or concept, just at a different level.
For example, in this center students sort one syllable short and long vowel words. I included two versions of the activity.
The only difference is the difficulty of the words used, but the centers look identical.
Order Up! is a center practicing alphabetizing. There are two different levels of difficulty, but look the same to the kids!
I also added a bunch of "teacher's helpers." I shared some of these earlier.
There are several versions of the menus. The menus can be a simple check list for students or a reflection tool for each center. Students can rate their understanding and effort for each center.
I also included a weekly reflection rubric for students to complete if the teacher wanted to use something more detailed than the rubrics on the menus above.
I wanted to make collection and assessment a snap, so I also included an editable checklist. The teacher can mark off the completed centers. A simple grading sheet is also included. The teacher can staple this onto the top of each child's stack of centers and put the grades right on the top (or a check plus/ check minus system).
Right now the centers are on sale for only $10! You can get your copy here.
If you managed to read this WHOOOOLLLEE post I also have a freebie for you! This is just a sample of one of the activities included!
