Does anyone know where I can find good resources for making centers for reading that evolve around the 5 major components of reading: Phonics, Comprehension, Fluency, Vocab., Phonemic Awareness.

I want to spend some of my winter break making more centers so my students can pick centers Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays AND so I can only have 2 people per center.

Making Centers Work by Debbie Diller is a fantastic book.
How many children do you have in your class.


Here is one I use and got from PT
newspaper literacy centers
Posted by: Julianne #20333

Here are some center ideas I got from a newspapers in the classroom workshop. You could have one center in your classroom be a "newspaper center" with rotating activities.
Have students find their spelling words in the newspaper, cut them out and paste them on a paper next to the written spelling words.

Cut rhyming words from the newspaper. Mount them at the ends of lined paper. Try to make a poem using the words you found. Write the rest of the poem with a pencil. Illustrate it if you like.

A center my friend next door used last year was "make your own comic book". Have students at the center choose a newspaper comic they like, cut it out and mount it on a piece of paper. They then must write all the nouns from the strip below it on their paper - or all the verbs, or all the ...

fcrr.org has tons of free, printable centers for each of the 5 strands. It's a great sight and the materials are Reading First approved!

Center Ideas

I'm not a great fan of centers. They can take too much time to make and with some groups the rotations doesn't work well.

I have used a book by Pat Pavelka (name may be spelled wrong) and like her ideas. I hate anything that takes a lot of time to make.

My first graders like to play Boggle as a teams. I turned this into a center. 16 letters are too much for them, so I give them a bag with 12 letters in it. They have to make 8 words and choose 2 to use in a sentence. The letters are ones we use in our spelling, which is based of certain sounds or rimes.

but have you looked at any of the Daily Five info? Debbie Diller is great and includes some of the same processes, but check out The Two Sisters and Daily Five on the web. You can also find many things in the Peony Room here on PT. I hope you found what you needed... but if not, here's another place to look. Good luck!

I'm so sad to hear that you are not a fan of centers! Centers is a great way for students to independantly practice skills with their peers. Students also tend to learn from their peers in this way.
