Lesson plan/ Unit examples were very concrete and helpful! I have used student interactive activities before, but have never used the ones selected here. I loved them and will use them with my students.

I enjoyed going through this information and I am looking forward to incorporating these center ideas when I am in my own classroom. I can see how this will be a great practice for all age level students, I love the fact that the students will get to write or draw in each center. This is a great practice for them to continue to build up their vocabulary. This will allow the students to do something constructive while I focus on reading groups.

Thank you so much. This site will really help me when I am trying to give explanations to classroom teachers on how to begin centers in their rooms. Now I have a place to send them to get detailed directions before I come to help implement the centers.

This is exactly what I was looking for! Step by step instructions on how to begin centers in an organized manner. You have also provided some wonderful lessons for me to explore. Thank you so much! Cannot wait to implement these centers in the fall.
