Mr. Duckworth's 1st Grade Classroom
Literacy Centers

*Listening Center- A center where children improve their reading skills by listening to stories on tape.

*Reading Center- At this center children may use the color coded stickers to identify books that they can read. They may choose their favorite book that is appropriate for their reading level and read this book on the carpet.

*Word Work Center- At this center children use picture cards, word cards, and letter blocks to build words using the phonemic awareness skills taught by our reading series Scott Foresman Reading Street.

*Writing Center- At the writing center children use their imaginations to draw a picture and write 2-3 complete sentences about the picture. The choice of the picture or theme is aligned to the story of the week.
