I'm sure there have been many posts about this, but I am in desperate need of some ideas. Last year I had all the first grade Title I students, so I had 2 other teachers in the room working with groups plus me so I didn't need to organize centers for my students. This year I will have my own class and will have three groups in my classroom. I would just like for anyone to give me ideas on literacy centers or just give me some ideas on what you have your students do while you work with a small group. I wouldnt be as concerned about this if it were like 3rd grade because they're independent, but 1st graders..um yeah..dif. story. Any suggestions would be wonderful. Thanks!
