These are pictures of a mock rotation chart I'll make once I get into my classroom in two weeks!!! =) Needless to say, I'm a bit crazy and a lil excited! So we talked about how we like the idea of rotations b/c with our old system- the kids were getting bored and finishing their work too quickly. So Lisa, our team's kdg guru told us about how she used to do this rotation schedule and our "head honchos of the school district" came in and told the current principal that "this is what he wants to see in EVERY classroom" b/c all our students were working on meaningful work and doing so quietly!
So we are going to do it this year and see how it works! We are all really excited about it... so here it goes!
The seat work station will be name activities and the monthly writing stations I bought from Mrs. Wills blog! =) We planned it so the kids will do a certain activity each day of the week so we aren't running around frantically finding "busy work"! I'm all about hands-on... and this will be great b/c we can differentiate easier with this too!
****The discover center is going to be something where the kids practice whatever skill we may be working on that week! Activities like:
- Read a book and make a puppet to go with the story.
- Draw and color a character in the book.
- Design a book cover for the book I just read.
- Draw the setting of the book I just read.
- Read a how-to-draw book and make a drawing.
So we'll see how this goes! I'll try and answer your questions as they come! =)
Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!!!
