Wanted: Center advice
Old 01-04-2012, 05:35 PM
Clip to ScrapBook #1

I just began my internship in a second grade classroom. I have never been into a classroom that doesn't have centers. I think centers are GREAT, but I have no idea how to enter a classroom that isn't accustomed to doing centers.
How should I go about this?
How can I teach my expectations?
How can I hold students accountable for their work done at centers?
How can I teach students how they should behave during centers?
I can come up with centers, but I feel so overwhelmed when thinking about how to even begin with the students.
Instead of doing centers, student's have daily assignments they complete while the teacher does reading small group. I think that having a chance to do independent work is important, but I'd like to incorporate centers. I think the kids would really benefit and like it.
ANY advice is welcome and GREATLY appreciated.
