My kids do center rotations for 20 minutes each, and I am not doing guided reading yet - just training centers and working out kinks. I'm noticing that my poetry center does not quite keep kids engaged for a full 20 minutes. Currently the center consists of: a pocket chart w/ the poem in it, pointers to read the pocket chart with, a couple smaller copies of the poem, some turtles they can act out the poem with (it's a poem called 10 Turtles), a laminated copy of the poem with sight words or digraphs missing that they can fill in, and paper, pencil and markers to illustrate the poem if they want. To me, that seems like a lot of choices! Why do you think it's not engaging?
