I am curious how many of you do lit centers as part of a reading block? I will be a new 2nd grade teacher this fall and will be required to do the 90 minute reading block. It is my understand that most teachers use about 30 minutes of this for whole group and do guided reading and centers during the remaining 60 minutes. If you do centers, how many do you rotate through in a week? I am thinking about starting out very simple - four stations. I don't want to overwhelm myself right off the bat. If I have three groups and meet with each group for 20 minutes (guided rdg), have them do a center for 20 minutes, and then independent seatwork for 20 minutes, will this work?? (Oh, also, I don't plan on doing the groups/centers on Fridays). Sorry for the long post and hope it's not confusing. Just curious as to your thoughts on whether this will work (or what you do that's different). Thanks!!!
