For those of you who have been wondering what kind of centers I use for literacy workshop here are some photo examples.  Each literacy center I try each try to address several different skills in one day.  First for sight words and sentence structure, students got to build various sentences using color coded cards.  Also students practiced saying sight words and covering them up using markers and spelling them.

With phonics and writing students got to build CVC words a write a sentence using the words they built.  Students also practiced writing short vowel words on workmats with dry erase markers as well match pictures with the written word.

Let’s not forget my computer center which is definitely the classroom favorite.  I paid for a classroom subscription to, and they have TONS of activities that include reading comprehension, phonological awareness, phonemic awareness, and even math for K-1!

Today as we continued our lesson on /ar/ words and sounds we practiced making words using cards on an onset / rime workmat.  After students had practice building words they recognized from the mini-lesson; they glued on the cards to create their favorite word.
