I would also like to do literacy groups. I know the teachers in my home town do "The Daily Five" and they love it. I created some literacy games that I thought about starting this year, but probably not at the beginning of the year. I need to do some more research on how literacy centers work.
Mrs. Ricca's kindergarten has a lot of literacy center ideas that I have been looking into.
Here are some free centers that I have in the TPT store:
Again, these are some of my first centers I created so they aren't my best work- but they are FREE! I use them in the fall when I do my farm units. One of my favorite centers is write the room. You will see this if you have visited my TPT store. I have a write the room for about every subject. They are great and super easy to use. The kids love them too. I just give them a clipboard and send them on their way. It is fun to hide the clues around the room and make them really look for them. I also let them use fun writing utensils from time to time. I have some crazy pen with fathers, or even just mechanical pencils kids think are really great to add a new spice to the center.
This is a free one on my TPT sight. Click below to be linked to print it.
I am pretty excited about my Brown Bear write the room I just created. My class loves this story at the beginning of year- they easily learn to read it on their own! It is great for our color unit!
