These quick back to school literacy centers are designed to be easy to use for that time when you need to assess students while having others work independently.

Back to school can be such a challenge for teachers. As a teacher, you are ready to jump in a help your students begin learning right away. However, there are so many assessments that must be completed before you are able to do this!
Students have not yet learned your expectations and our youngest students might not be ready to work independently at centers. For this reason, we have created a set of centers with simple directions. Our hope is that these centers will allow you to get in some one on one time as you assess your students.
You will find the following activities within this collection:
Rainbow Words (students will need a die to play this roll & write game – we have included this board in color and black and white)
Literature & Informational Text Graphic Organizers (Place a basket of books in a wide range of levels to meet the needs of your students at this center)
Informational Text Graphic Organizer
Making Friends (students interview a group member and complete this form)
Write the Room Activities (students find words around the room and illustrate each word)
