Our Centers are changing and we are starting to get ready for first grade.


That’s right starting in January we are going from a 5 center room to an 8 center room which will include:

Listening Center (circle) Creative Writing Center (rhombus)     

Dramatization Center (hexagon) Decoding Center (trapezoid)

Sound and Letter Center (square)         Fluency Center (oval)

Publishing and Penmanship Center (triangle)        

Comprehension and Vocabulary Building Center (rectangle)

Children will go to two centers a day for about 20 minutes each and will have new and challenging things to complete in each center. While this is happening I will be teaching reading readiness skills.  If your child doesn’t finish their center work they will have a chance on Friday to complete their work. I will also be having an individual meeting with each child on Fridays about what they did last week and what they are working on this next week. This will be difficult at first so don’t expect perfect work at first, it will be difficult enough to get 25 children to move from one center to another and work independently.

From now on we will also be following the Magic Tree House chapter books. So from now on you will be hearing about Jack and Annie until the end of the school year. J The Magic Tree House books that we will be reading are:

6.Afternoon on the Amazon

7.Sunset of the Saber tooth          8.Midnight on the Moon

9.Dolphins at Daybreak                 10.Ghost Town at Sundown

11.Lions at Lunchtime                    12.Polar Bears Pasted Bedtime

13.Vacation Under the Volcano    14.Day of the Dragon-King

15.Viking Ships at Sunrise             16.Hour at the Olympics

First we will be learning background knowledge about most of the books to help with comprehension. I will hopefully get to them all, but if not feel free to take them out at the library and continue reading them to your student over the summer.


If you have any questions or are wondering what book we are on this week please feel free to contact me via email at chhall@pway.org
