Alright, well, each year I change a little bit on how I manage center time (in addition, each school makes us call it something different, workshop, universal access time, etc) Anyways, I'm at a new school, half day kinder, and my favorite way of running centers isn't quite working. So, I'm coming to you guys to hear how you manage centers. This is how I've done it and what I liked the best, but isn't working this year: I would have four table centers with work. The four would be phonics, journal, reading, and maybe an art or math activity. Of course, these things change based on what we were learning that day. Everyday was a different activity. The kids chose where they wanted to go to, as long as they visited each table. Once they have visited each table, then they could go have free time. This was when I taught full day. Now, I"m half day and my kids are not able to get to every table. We have 1 hour for center time. My kids are academically very low and they are just slow workers. So, I need some ideas on how you guys run your center time. THANKS!!!
