Literacy Centers - Mrs. Jones's Kindergarten

Literacy Centers

Some updates from our classroom.... last week we started our Literacy Center rotations, and the kids have been LOVING it!  I decided to do mini-groups of 3, and we do 2 rotations per day. I made these new labels for one of my pocket charts (teachers you can find the labels here) but then changed it up and transferred all of the files to my smart board. Love that even more! Now with a little finger, I can switch the centers around. Can you say easy peasy?  Here's the pocket chart way:
And the Smart board way. (*Update-- I've had some questions about sharing this Smart Notebook File. I jerry-rigged this setup on my smartboard for my classroom use, but I can't share it because I can't give away unsecured clipart. The labels are only available in the above format. Sorry!**)

 Magnetic words with the beginning sounds we were practicing last week:

And these are the "Magic Reading Wands" that we are using for our poetry center. 
They REALLY help us read our poems better. :)
Have a great week everyone!
