    Centers

    I don't use centers in my classroom, and the other teachers in my grade don't, either. We have a job board with specific tasks the students complete daily. For example, during reading, if I am not meeting with their group, they will be reading fro their bookbags, filling out their log sheet and/or completing a book letter to me if it's their week to do so. Other jobs might be correcting errors on a math paper, finishing a project they were working on or using the computer. One of the reasons centers don't work for me is that my classroom is very small, and display space and storage is at a premium. This year, they had to remove the wires in every classroom that we had used to hang student work and charts. The reason was fire insurance. A job board just works better for me.
