I LOVE centers. I do both reading and math centers in my classroom. I think they are a great AWESOME way to make sure that all students are on task and learning. I am lucky enough to get to teach reading for an hour. In that hour, my students go to 3 centers and I pull a leveled group during each center. My centers include reading,writing, word (spelling and digraphs), theme (science/social studies integration), computer, and a game center (normally word based). I wanted to share one of my centers with y'all. I am giving everyone a Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballscenter idea. In science, we are learning about weather (one of my favorite units). To start the unit, we watched Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs (read aloud on YouTube) and then we discussed the weather words in the book. I also made a fantasy vs. reality connection. Such fun! :-) The next day in their theme center, they drew what they wished itwould rain and wrote a couple of sentences. They had such GREAT drawings. I hope you can use it.
