Literacy Centers for 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th Grade (December)


These are great for literacy centers!
Included are Language Arts centers for the entire month of December!
There are 64 centers total with instructions on how to implement them into your classroom. Each center comes with a task card and a corresponding worksheet (with the exception of the “teacher directed center”. I leave that task card blank, because as the classroom teacher, you will know what to teach your small groups best. The technology center sometimes does not require a worksheet as well).

Writing (narrative, informative, descriptive, opinion/persuasive prompts)

Spelling (various games and worksheets to practice weekly spelling words)

Reading (author’s purpose, text connections, main ideas and details, and visualizing)

Figurative Language (similes, metaphors, personifications, hyperboles)

Vocabulary (various games and worksheets to practice weekly vocabulary skills)

Technology (these are optional centers depending on the available technology in your classroom. Most centers require at least an iPod or a computer).

Teacher-Directed Time (A center time for you to meet with your small reading group)

There are 64 tasks cards, corresponding worksheets for each center, 8 pocket chart center cards, pocket chart cards labeling classroom groups, and card labels to place around the room saying where each center is located.

*Some Reading centers will require the classroom teacher to provide reading material, other than that, print, copy, laminate, and you are ready to go with Language Arts Centers for the WHOLE month of December!

    This is a great center pack that I highly suggest. The only complaint I have about this product is the amount of “Christmas” topics that appeared throughout the activities. I teach in a school where we are not allowed to celebrate the holidays. Good news is I just highlighted anything that mentioned Christmas and whited it out and replaced it with Holiday questions.
