The show and tell this week is about literacy centers. I love literacy centers. There are so many cool things you can do. I have a few things I do on a frequent basis with different words/themes per week. I also have some games and activities that I do infrequently.
Here are some of those ideas.
I have students use voc words each week from the reading group story that we are doing to write and stamp their words.
I have students listen to the stories on cd with headphones, whisper read with "whisper-ma-phones," and read to a buddy. We also do a word sort of the grammar theme- ex. dipthong oi and oy words to sort.
I like the games bananagrams, voc words rainbow roll and write (I got it from A Cupcake for the Teacher blog), and Scrabble Slam (card game).
Those are a few things I use for my center switches. I also have decent sized writing jobs for each Tues-Thurs. The jobs go along with the reading group theme, as well as the style of story- expository, report, etc.
