Center Rotation Charts

What type of center rotation charts does everyone use?
Anyone have some pictures of ones that are easy to read and easy to change daily?

I typically have between 7-9 centers/groups, with three center rotations per day.
Thanks!

That one certainly looks cute... do you think the teacher just rotates the groups down the row??

This is my center rotation chart. It is simple, but works well with my fourth graders. Each student is assigned to a group and they go to one center per day. I have five basic centers. I pull four or five students from centers to work with for 10-15 minutes and then they return to their group. The chart is posted so student may refer to it as needed.

Newtch08 - I use a center chart from Lakeshore Learning (AA853) here is the link:

http://www.lakeshorelearning.com/seo...%7CAA853~~.jsp

I have 5 groups w/4 students in each group and they rotate through 3 -4 centers a day (depending on what we are learning that particular week). I just change the top header card every day and the students look for their header color/group NOT their names. It was confusing to me at first but once I saw a teacher using this chart I could never use another one!

I use a table top pocket chart from RGS. It has 4 color sections so I give my kids each a color and these are the activities they can choose from when work is completed.

You could use it for centers and change it up to make three rotations each day perhaps. I like it because it doesn't take up bulletin board space and I can move it where I need to.

Here's what I came up with!

Each group will be assigned a letter (posted next to this chart).
Everyday the group will go to the three centers next to their letter. When centers are over, my Centers Helper will go over and move the front strip to the back for each letter. Since there are three strips front to back, this will reveal the next group of three centers the class will go to.

Since I am going with 8 groups, there will always be one center left open, which I might use for someone who needs to work independently.

The sign is a little cluttered, but I had all of these materials at my house. The centers are essentially in a circular pattern in my room, so once they use this pattern, they won't need to look at the sign, other than to see where to start for the day.
