Every summer I try and spend some time creating, buying and hunting for new literacy centers! I have found some ammmmmmazing centers out on the net and thought I'd share. I went through tons of blog archives on a mission...and here is what I found :) I found these mostly from blogs, but I linked directly to the TpT or file so that you didn't have to dig to find them!! Hope you can find something useful! I know I did!!!
I Love 2 Teach did a great post last year on using standard literacy centers. I like to use thematic ones, but sometimes it's also nice to have centers that the students are familiar with. I Love 2 Teach does a great job with this center! She created centers that can be used with any store. This is a great staple to any guided reading routine! Be sure to check it out at RIGHT HERE!
