    Can anyone give me any books or websites to use to get center ideas for fourth grade? I know there are tons of file folder games, but where can I find those? Also, if you could give me any new ideas for my classroom for centers that would be awesome.

    Literacy Work Stations

    Try this book- "Practice With Purpose" Literacy Work Stations for Grades 3-6. It's very interesting and has practical ideas. It's not just literacy stations though, it has ideas for different subjects/content areas. Teachers in my school district have implemented it and I've seen it work really well.

    How about spelling centers?


    The spelling center offers a variety a ways to study spelling words besides a typical worksheet. Students can choose to use stencils or stamps to spell out words on a variety of paper. I also have an organized container of magnetic letters available to use on cookie sheets. Scrabble tiles are also included. I have found several sets at garage sales. Some students like to use the Scrabble board. Others like to spell out words on the wooden stands that come with the game. Before I set up the center, I googled spelling ideas and found an array of ideas to incorporate. I found the best list at the following website:

    I LOVE your site! I found it a few months ago when I was looking up how to organize the classroom. Great site.
