Hi! It's Sarah from Learning is for Superstars! I am teaching a combination first/second class in central Virginia this year. This post is about how to make reading centers work and function in your classroom.
Pictured here are one of the skills the second graders have been working on. Everything, including any copies, are in the envelope. I pull the envelope out for the week to use and then place it back on the shelves at the end of the week.
Reading Toward the Stars!, and then come to me for reading group. With me we spend thirty minutes working on a second grade skill for about ten minutes and the rest of the time is spent reading. We are currently going through Frog and Toad. This is something the rest of our second graders read, but I'm going at a much slower pace and doing serious comprehension work on each chapter.
|Last week the second graders took a break from Frog and Toad to read The Missing Mitten Mystery.|
Here's some of my centers from last week. When they finish, everything goes back into the baggies and drop into the pink tub.
If you teach a combination class I would love to hear from you!
