Quick Literacy Centers for Back to School

These quick back to school literacy centers will be a good beginning of year activity that offers students practice with center work.

Try our quick back to school literacy centers at the beginning of the school year.

These are designed to be easy to use for that time when you need to help students learn what center work will look like.

They are also helpful when you need time to assess students while having others work independently.

This is another free resource for classroom teachers and homeschool families from The Curriculum Corner.

Back to school can be such a challenge for teachers.

As a teacher, you are ready to jump in a help your students begin learning right away.

However, there are so many assessments that must be completed before you are able to do this!

We also have to aware of the importance of teaching procedures. Children need practice with what center work should look like.

Students have not yet learned your expectations and our youngest students might not be ready to work independently at centers.

For this reason, we have created a set of centers with simple directions. Our hope is that these centers will allow you to get in some one on one time as you assess your students.
