I have been using literacy basket rotations (literacy centers) for 2 years in kindergarten and LOVE it. The kids look forward to the activities and all the extra hands-on practice has been so helpful in getting from understanding a concept to truly mastering it. I am moving up to third grade next year and would like to maintain this idea. Anyone have some activity ideas for 3rd grade? I HATE baskets that rely 100% on completing worksheets, it defeats the purpose in my mind although recording sheets are great following an activity. What specific skills should my 3rd graders be working on? I am in a different state so I don't have the text books to review right now. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
