Classroom teachers are already loving this resource!
“This provided materials and activities to help support my struggling readers. This gives them an opportunity to work at their own level independently!”   -Melanie
“I use the phonics centers (long e, diagraph) in my reteach/small groups! I usually explain the phonics rule, then we build some words together, and then I divide up the cards, and the kids practice sorting. It worked so well, and my students were fully engaged!”  - Stacy
“All but 5 or 6 of my second graders are on a K/1 level so this is wonderful for more levels of differentiation! I do an after school group on Wednesdays for some kids in my class and will be using these during that time as well.”  - Alyssa
I can’t wait to hear how these literacy centers transform your literacy block! Send me a message after you download and let me know how it’s going. Happy teaching!
