What is the Binder of Literacy Centers?

The Binder of Literacy Centers is an all-in-one center option that is still engaging and hands-on. This packet is an excellent option if you are doing low-exposure (not sharing of supplies among students) during center time. The Binder of Literacy Centers can be used during independent literacy centers, used at the guided reading table, a literacy intervention group, as an early finisher option, or used for supplemental homework. The packet includes 1,000+ pages for literacy centers.


The Binder of Literacy Centers is completely comprehensive, so the only thing you’ll need to add in is a few hands-on items/manipulatives and dry erase markers! To prep the Binder of Literacy Centers, simply print the selected pages and place them into a 1/2 inch or 1-inch binder. Place the sheets into page protectors double sided to maximize the page protectors. You can also place the sheets into dry-erase sleeves.

Setting up the Binder of Literacy Centers:

Binder: Each student will receive their own center binder. You can use 1/2 inch or a 1-inch binder. Each student’s binder will contain 5-10 sheet protectors. Place printed pages in double-sided to maximize your sheet protectors. Add the binders and page protectors to your school supply list or possibly ask for donations to maximize your budget.

Supplies: Each student will need a few minimal supplies for their center time. These supplies can be stored in a binder pouch, baggie, or their supply box. Students will need a dry erase marker, spinner, dot cube, and counters/mini erasers. You might also choose to supply students with a reading wand, toy car, or googly reading eyes.

OPTIONAL Teacher "Master Copies" Binder: Set up a ‘master’ binder for each skill. By doing so you can quick swap pages from binders and access new sheets to stuff the page protectors with. This is optional. You can also just use the digital PDF version and print what you need. Then save these printed versions to create your binder ‘as you go’ through the year.

OPTIONAL Guided Reading or Intervention Binder: Set up a binder for students to use during guided reading, intervention, or small-group time. The binder will be stuffed with pages just like the independent binder. Keep the binders near your table so you can quickly access them during group time. Students will also need access to supplies like the independent binders.
