Literacy Centers

I know, I know, Daily 5 is the way to go.... but for me, well, just take a look at the centers I use in my third grade classroom. I change them every 5 days.

At the Language Center, the students practice grammar skills that have been taught this year. 
They use task cards with a recording sheet and are able to use the answer key to check their answers for immediate feedback.

At the Writing Center, the students have a reading passage and a writing prompt to complete, or just a writing prompt. 
These rough drafts are stored in their Writing Notebooks as a possible writing to edit and publish in the future.

At the Science Center, the students have task cards to read and record the answers on the recording sheet. They check the answers with an answer key.
At this center, the students are reading content with a purpose (the science book is available as a reference).
The task cards are a review of content covered during Science.

At the Social Studies Center, the students have task cards to read and record the answers on the recording sheet. They check the answers with an answer key.
Just like the Science Center, the students are reading content with a purpose.
This week they were using an atlas to help with map skills.
The task cards can be found  here.
The task cards are a review of content covered during Social Studies.

At the Word Work Center, the students have a choice of activities to use with the weekly spelling words or reading vocabulary words.

The Literacy and Math boards are placed behind each other. I just move the Math boards to the front before the Math block.



And this is how I feel after finding, buying, printing, laminating, cutting, and organizing these centers:
Isn't she adorable? Yes, that tongue is always sticking out!
