    I have tried centers every year, I think this is my lucky year....:)

    I teach 3rd grade. I don't know how many kids I'm going to have, but we have 90 minutes of reading. I think I'd do centers a few times a week....I'm not sure. I was going to do a reading group with me, a spelling center, a computer center, and maybe a silent reading center (then they'll have to journal about what they read about).

    Does anyone else have ideas???

    A listening center would be great if you can find some volunteers who are willing to read and record themselves (or if you have access to books on tape). This would be great for modeling fluency, and you could even have some sort of comprehension questions as well.

    Other good centers may be a non-fiction center, magazine center, and journaling center to accomodate the silent reading. :)

    I have 3rd grade and do not do centers. While I meet with guided reading groups, my students read independently and then respond to their reading in their readers notebook. It takes awhile and alot of modeling but I believe that students need to be independently reading as much as possible. I have them respond to help with comprehension and also writing skills. It works well with me- when I conference with my students, I check their reading notebooks for completed work.
