ABC Word Wall Headings 2
I use a song by Barbara Milne called "Letter Sounds (apple, apple)" which matches the pictures on my word wall. The song is available from her web site, and also on iTunes. I really like this alphabet song when the children are using the pointer to follow along with the ABC's. It's a slower song and gives the children plenty of time to find and point to each letter. Here's a really cool YouTube video for it:
I place mini word walls in the children's chair pockets, with sight words on them. That way, they don't have to get up and go over to the ABC wall. They can simply grab it from their chair pocket. You could also leave them in a bucket on the table. I'm selling a variety of these on Teacher's Notebook and TPT.
Here's a picture of my writing center:
The final picture for today is of my library center:
It's not quite done. I'm going in to school tomorrow to finish before the kids show up on Monday. I did add a basket of Beanie Babies so the kids can read books to them. I also found some Viewmasters online that I think will be a beautiful addition to this center. The children will be able to tell the story as they're viewing illustrations. This toy was really popular when I was little.
I'd love to hear what all of you are doing for your literacy centers.
