Here's a treasure trove of ideas for centers, Writer's and Reader's Workshop, and printable task cards for independent work, etc. It's a Second Grade website, so you may have to tweak some of the activities for younger kiddos, but what a great springboard for ideas! I'm thinking of making a separate Sight Word Center solely based on her spelling center ideas. It will be a hybrid of her ideas for differentiated spelling word lists using Rainbow Words that I've customized to fit my teaching order instead. If you aren't familiar with Rainbow Words, click here: www.rainbowwords.com. Whew!
I love the task card ideas for fostering independence. Check out www.ourclassweb.com now!
