Mandatory centers rotations

Clip to ScrapBook #2

I'm student teaching in a first grade and the teacher calls her literacy work "centers". Each table group rotates through the whole set weekly. The format(?) resembles Daily 5, but only one each day. (Fabulous phonics=word work, write on=work on writing<she also has a separate writing workshop>, listening, poetry, and I can't remember the 5th). During this time she calls groups for guided reading, and when they finish the do self-selected reading.
It seems like the term 'center' makes it sound more fun to the students.
Hope that helps.
