I am currently co-teaching and I'm trying to plan ahead for next year when I'll have my own class. I don't love my co-teacher's center organization. She has a posterboard with centers listed down each side, then each guided reading group has a different colored clip that gets clipped onto their assigned center. We have two center rotations per day, and one of us has to get up and move the clips after the first rotation.
Next year I will also have two center rotations a day. Guided reading, computers, listening center, buddy reading, response journals, word work, and possibly another guided reading/skills group with my para.
How do you organize your groups? Do your guided reading groups rotate centers together? If not, what works for you?
Do you have a chart where you record who goes where, so you can make sure they get to each center within a week?
Any tips or tricks? Please share!
