Center Organization

I have been teaching 8 years and I am constantly trying to reorganize and restructure how I set up my centers.  I finally found a routine that helped me last year stay organized and keeps the kids responsible for knowing where they should be during center time!  This is a MUST HAVE for me to keep my sanity!  Haha!  (but really...)

Here is an overview of what is included in this Center Rotation Kit!

You can see in the picture below that I have a pocket chart with numbered centers and little picture cards saying what the students do at each center.  The white cards next to it are filled in with the students' names.  It tells them where they need to be during center time.  I also label the baskets to match the assigned centers so the students know where to get there materials at.

I created little "accountability" sheets for the students to cross off the center they completed for the day.  This is helpful for me to scan their accountability sheets to know who is slacking or who is almost done with all of the centers.  The main reason for this is to help me see who needs to do what center when planning out my small groups. 

I included a picture of all of the cards in the Center Rotation Kit!  :)

Head over to Freebielicious to see more "must haves" for the beginning of the year!
