Picture 1.: The back corner of my room houses the two towers, they are filled with quiet centers such as letter and number stencils, wiki sticks with ABC mats, pop beads, stringing beads and more.
Picture 2: Closeup of same area
Picture 3: Early reader buckets, classification center, word work tiles, Popcorn words (Unit found on TpT) and a bucket with the students handwriting workbooks.
Picture 4: Classification center with letter and word tiles for word work. This is a standing center that allows movement and keeps ctudents from having to sit for long periods of time.
So far this center system is working great, we are rotating between a orksheet station, read to self station and this quiet center station. My classroom was so calm when I put this in place this week, everyone was occupied and engaged. We move every 15 minutes. I mde sure to teach how to use each area and practice a few times. The students were very good about not dumping the drawers and placing everything back where it belonged.
Till Next Time,
