I am still working through my creation of math centers, and am hoping that if any of you have further advice, or would even like to comment/make suggestions about what I am doing, please do. This past week I introduced math centers (thanks for everyone's help here). This is the first time I have done math centers (we do daily 3, so they know about rotations, and we do Friday centers, so they are used to the format). Here is how I am doing math now: Monday: Spiral review/calendar....direct instruction...individual math practice Tuesday:Spiral review...calendar....math centers (I meet with group A, there are only 2 rotations either meet with me & folder, or hands-on and folder). Wednesday: Spiral review...Calendar....math centers (2 rotations: I meet with group B and then they do folder, all other groups do hands-on and folder). Thursday:Spiral review...Calendar...math centers (2 rotations: I meet with group C and then they do folder, all other groups do hands-n and folder). So, it seemed to go ok, but as always, I just feel so edgy during centers because there is so much going on. The centers are 20 minutes long, but still, I feel rushed. Also, it is taking longer to do math now....But, this is the only way I can figure out to do this. My kids have anywhere from 2-3 specials a day, so that's 2-3 hours a day they are in another class... Any comments on how I am doing my centers (hopefully my explanation isn't too confusing), or suggestions? Any tips? I hope this next week goes better, not to say this past week was a total flop, but we will have a few visitors in another week because we are going through a second accreditation, and I will likely be observed. I just want to get this perfected by then.
