Big Book Center - For this center choose a few big books to put out that have not too many, but not too few words. There has to be a variety of words for the kids to read. The text can not repeat over and over. The children choose one book and then have to complete the form. It is difficult for the kids. I try to teach them to look at the first word and decide where to write it on the sheet. Then look at the second word. Decide where to write it. It was a great strategy to work on. ***PDF
High Frequency Word Magnetic Board Writing - This center is really easy to get ready. I print up our high frequency words on labels to make all kinds of learning games quickly and easily. I just use address labels. I put the labels on different seasonal cut outs. The kids practice writing the words on the Magnetic Writing Boards. They have to read the words to a friend before they erase the word.
