What are some ideas for literacy centers for 6th graders?
I have been looking at doing literacy stations for my ELA 6th graders but am having trouble figuring out exactly what kind of stations to set up. There are so many different ideas and it's overwhelming when I try to think of implementing it in the classroom. We are close to the end of the year, so I'm really just trying to "get my feet wet" at this point and just try it for a few days (next week we are adding 1 hour to the school day so my classes will be longer. I figured that's a good time to at least try out stations). Any suggestions on what I should do? My biggest concern is my writing block. We are working on grammar now and also trying to prepare for state testing so writing is a big part of what I would like to work on. Thanks!
