Literacy Center Rotation Templates



Have you wondered how to run literacy centers in your 1st grade or 2nd grade classroom? How do teachers make them work fluently and be successful?

Running Literacy Center Rotations can be a difficult task for many teachers to figure out. It takes organization and classroom management. But how do you become organized and set it up? That’s where I come in. I share my expertise with you and help set up your centers with you.

I have included a variety of tips, templates, and resources to get you started off on the right foot. It is editable so that you can fit it towards your needs.

Literacy Rotations or Centers as I call them, are used weekly in the classroom as a time where teachers can meet with small groups and teach differentiated learning while the rest of the class is working on independent work right at their level. It is a time for students to work on word work (grammar, phonics, words), writing, technology programs, silent reading, and more.

In my classroom, we do 2 rotations a day for about 15 minutes each.

You may also be interested in my Reading Response Worksheets. These work great in Literacy Rotations and can be used ALL year.
