Balanced Literacy Plunge




So I'm not sure how many of you have taken the "Balanced Literacy" Plunge, but I sure have. The funny thing is they keep coming up with all these names for things educators have been doing for quite some time ;)  I try to add at least two content area centers throughout the week. We have seven stations a day, so that's pretty easy for us to do! I am going to post next week about my literacy center rotation schedule now that I'm back to first :))) 


My balanced Literacy routine is pretty simple. I try to incorporate as many content area centers as I can. The past few weeks we've been working on Map Skills
My kiddos LOVE floor puzzles! They are such a great tool to help develop important critical thinking skills. My kids do the puzzle, then complete a labeling activity. The puzzle shown is one of my favs from Melissa and Doug! 







Read Alouds for Maps







We've also worked on Rhyming Words this week. These puzzle match ups are great for reinforcing those tricky rhyming words....and they are on a little flash sale :) 



 Here are few other centers we used this week from my Winter Literacy Center Packet (also on sale!)
