Long story short, I need to start incorporating centers in my classroom, specifically for my lowest students. I have no idea how this works or what it should look like in a MS LA classroom (googling lead to an awful of great resources for elementary). What are some things I should be looking at? Grammar, proof reading, root word games have all crossed my mind. Reading is a bit trickier... quite a few of my students are not fluent readers (most in my standard classes are in the 2nd - 5th grade range). I don't have access to tape players or headphones. So I'm thinking we would read something ahead of time as a class, then have center activities that focus on that passage... but everything has to align with the CCSS, of course. I'd probably also have a station on short-answer response and citing evidence. Anyone have any ideas or pointers for me?
