Hello,

I am currently trying to set up my centers and I was just wondering how often do you change them? When change I do not mean how often do you rotate your children through, but how often do you have new activities for your centers? once a month, twice a month etc. Thanks for the feedback its really appreciated!

every week I change centers...sort of. The centers stay the same pretty much all year long, I just change the words (for vocab or word study) or change the activity that they do on the computer. I also change the reading passage for the fluency center every 1-2 weeks.

The categories stay the same, but the activities/objectives change weekly.

Hello I'm teaching first grade this year. I always make up to 20 stations and my children go 2 at a time to one station per day. SO I do not have to change stations but every 20 days. We do storytown and we test on Day 6 so we do not do stations on day 6. SO my stations last a month. But they have enough works and games to last them the entire 35-40 minutes while I do my small groups. I do theme baskets during my intervention and they change each week. Like this week they are doing community helpers. Then I do my math stations like my Literacy stations! Would love to get ideas about stations from different people and then we could all share! My children love all my stations! They ask to do stations!

What are some activities that you put in your centers that last 30 to 45 minutes? Please share.

My activities change weekly. The centers change a bit too, we are driven by raising student weaknesses and pushing student strengths this is all organized by our Discovery Ed computer probe data... so we are really unable to have the same type of centers all year. Mine vary weekly.
